Details

Surrounded by the rolling landscape of middle Sri Lanka, Kandy, or Maha Nuwara (great city) in Sinhalese, is great to explore on foot. Walk past Kandy Lake, witnessing glimpses of the Temple of the Tooth on your way to the British Garrison Cemetery, as you listen to stories of colonial residents. Experience the religious diversity of the island from the temple grounds to an elegant church, effervescent kovil and past a local mosque. Break at the Empire Café before roaming busier streets packed with vendors and historical monuments. Finish your walk at Kandy’s enticing main market, brimming with native fruits and vegetables.
