Kandy

Kandy - 72 Miles from Colombo. Nestled in the mountains 1600ft above sea level is Kandy the living cultural centre of the country. It was the last stronghold of the Sinhalese Kings until it was finally ceded to the British by agreement in 1815 A.D. Kandy is the most sacred site with the Temple of the Sacred Tooth Relic, the ceremonial pageantry- the Kandy Perahera dating back to 1774, is held once a year in July or August. Kandy is the famous centre of Arts and Culture, famous for its dance forms and music.

Audience Hall, remains of the Royal Palace and other buildings, Natha, Vishnu, Pattini & Skanda Devala are some other places of interest.

Visit Temple of the Sacred Tooth Relic.

Temple of the Sacred Tooth Relic – When King Wimaladharmasuriya I (1592-1604 A.D.) became King in Kandy; he searched for the Tooth Relic and the bowl Relic of the Buddha and found that it was kept at the Delgomuwa Buddhist Temple at Kuruwita, for more than 44 years, hidden in a grinding stone. The King had gone there personally and brought the Sacred Tooth Relic to Kandy in a procession accompanied by the King. The first Temple of the Tooth Relic was constructed by Wimaladharmasooriya I to house it next to the Royal Palace. The Portuguese burned down the 2-floored building and King Wimaladharma sooriya II (1687-1707) erected a 3-storied building to house the Sacred Tooth Relic. It was burnt down once again and a new 2-storied building was constructed by King Narendra singhe (1707-1739 A.D.) and what we see today may be the building constructed by him. He also painted 32 Jataka Stories on the outer walls of the building.

En Route Stop at Ramboda Waterfall

Main part of the fall is easily visible to Kandy – Nuwara Eliya Road, Making it a popular stop for anyone with a camera Visit Tea Factory and Garden.

Nuwara Eliya City tour by Car

Nuwara Eliya – The ‘Little England’ of Sri Lanka, is set against beautiful backdrops of Mountains, Valleys, Waterfalls and Tea Plantations. It is supposed to be one of the coolest places in the Island, but it is really just like an English spring day, although the temperature does drop at night. All around Nuwara Eliya you will see evidence of the British influence, houses like country cottages or Queen Ann style mansions. The Victoria Park, in the middle of the town, is a lovely place for a stroll or a picnic and is also good for Birding as you get some rare birds in this Park. Seasons may be absent elsewhere in Sri Lanka, but here you can read them by the flowers, which bloom in the spring (march to May) and the fall (August and September). These are the “seasons” when low-country folk flock to Nuwara Eliya to escape the sea level heat and humidity

Seetha Amman temple Seetha Amman temple

The stream that runs from the hill, catered to the needs of Sitadevi during her stay at Ashok Vatika. She is said to have bathed in this stream. About a century ago of three idols was discovered in the stream, one of which was that of Sita. It is believed that the idols have been worshipped at this spot for centuries. Now there is temple for Lord Rama, Sitadevi, Luxshmana, and Hanuman by the side of this stream. It is interesting to note that foot prints akin to Lord Hanuman's are found by this river and some are of small size and some are of large size, which tells us of the immense powers of hanuman transforming himself into any size.

The trek leaders have good experience and are very helpful during trek with all the necessary details that one need to know.
I would suggest to carry minimum luggage as possible as the trek is demanding with high endurance so keeping the luggage at minimum only essentials like water, energy bars and drinks, will help you once the 75% bar of the trek is done😅....also would be nice if you practice cardio beforehand atleast 15-20 days if you don't go to gym, it will really aid you.
Overall a very good experience with treks and trails.
