When you arrive at Colombo Bandaranayake International Airport, our tour representative will meet you and take you to your designated vehicle for the transfer to Kandy. Stop along the trip to see the Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage. A home for abandoned, injured, and orphaned elephants that is cared for by carers and volunteers. Walk up to a nearby river with an elephant herd to watch them play and bathe. Later, proceed to Kandy, the final capital of ancient Sri Lankan rulers. Kandy, set among hills, is the country's second largest city and one of seven World Heritage sites gifted with immense natural beauty. This picturesque city is home to verdant meadows, a magnificent lake, and Sri Lanka's longest river.
Kandy touring begins after check-in. The first stop of the day is to the Temple of the Tooth Relic, also known locally as Sri Dalada Maligawa. This temple is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the world's most respected Buddhist sites. The Peradeniya Botanical Gardens, a haven for nature lovers, are next on the itinerary. Every year, nearly 1.2 million people visit this garden, which is spread across 147 acres of lush terrain. It is home to over 300 different types of orchids, medicinal plants, palm trees, and spices. Later, visit the magnificent Gem Museum, which produces the world's finest quality gems and semi-precious stones, including gleaming sapphires in a variety of colours such as green, white, red, blue, and even purple.
After breakfast at the hotel on day 2, depart for Nuwara Eliya, often known as the City of Lights. This wonderful city, surrounded by lush tea plantations and hills, has been blessed with nice weather, colourful meadows, a green environment, and spectacular views of the mountains and valleys. This settlement is also known as 'Little England,' since it was founded as a typical English hamlet by the British. A country house-style hill club with trophies and hunting photographs, a formal dinner linen, a bricked post office, a horse race track and an 18-hole golf course are all evidence of this. When you arrive, check into the hotel.
Explore Nuwara Eliya's popular attractions, including as Victoria Park, the golf course, and the trout streams. After that, you can go boating and fishing on Lake Gregory. Your next stop should be at a tea plant to witness the manufacturing of the world's finest Orange Pekoe tea from the slow-growing tea bushes of this highland region. Other places to consider visiting include Haggala Gardens and Seetha Eliya. The latter is a temple from the ancient Hindu epic Ramayana, while the former is a temperate hill-country garden with languid low-country lotus and water lily floating in immaculate surroundings.
Stay in Nuwara Eliya for the night.
