SRI LANKA / Kandy, Tea & A Tropical Sunset
Untitled Document

A fascinating complete round trip of Sri Lanka combining a wonderful blend of historic sites, nature walking in the tea country and exotic beaches.

 

Day 1: Colombo Airport - The Wallawwa

We will meet you at Colombo airport and transfer you to The Wallawa, a short drive north of the airport. Unwind and relax in their beautiful gardens.

 

Days 2, 3: The Wallawwa – Kandy

The journey from The Wallawwa to Sri Lanka’s hill capital - the small lakeside city of Kandy will occupy most of the day. On the way we will visit an Elephant Orphanage and have lunch. The following day a city tour includes the fabulous Botanical gardens and the Temple of the Tooth, in which a sacred relic of the Lord Buddha is enshrined. Another option is to see Kandy’s sites on the first day in Kandy and on the second day head over to Victoria Reservoir for a round of Golf and lunch, colonial style, at the club house overlooking the Victoria Reservoir.

Kandy

Kandy is known for its mild climate, colonial architecture, its spectacular festival - The Kandy Perahera which takes place in August. The Perahera is a procession of the sacred Buddha relic through the streets of Kandy, accompanied by dancers, musicians, entertainers and elephants. Kandy is also well known for being home to Sri Lanka’s holiest temple, the Temple of the Tooth. Victoria Reservoir, a short half hour ride from Kandy is home to Sri Lanka’s best golf course, the Victoria Golf Club, regarded by many as one of the most scenic golf courses in Asia.

Days 4 & 5: Kandy – Tea Country

Your next stop is the hill country, also known as the tea country. The train ride from Kandy to the heart of Sri Lanka’s Tea Country is one of the most scenic train rides in Asia. There is an observation carriage at the end of the train with large windows to enjoy the views. There are two trains daily and the travel time is approximately 2.5 hours. The train stops in Hatton where your driver will await at the station to drive you to the Tea Trails bungalow of your choice. Tea Trails consists of 4 classic colonial bungalows built for British tea estate managers in the days of the Raj, one of the most exquisite hotels in Sri Lanka, with private butler service and the finest cuisine.

 

Day 6 & 7: Tea Country to Uda Walawe National Park

After breakfast we travel out of the hills and head south to Uda Walawe, one of the island’s most popular wildlife sanctuaries, which is mainly open parkland traversed by streams and is best known for its herds of wild elephant. the southeast corner of the island.

Uda Walawe National Park – Kulu Safaris

Kulu Safaris present mobile Safaris that combine professional naturalists, luxurious facilities and exclusive surroundings deep inside the National Park. Photograph wild elephants and an abundance of wildlife. Return to your camp for a swim, watch the wildlife at sunset ambling along the water’s edge. Uda Walawe National Park is best known for its large and very visible herds of elephants, often visible even at mid day. The resident population of elephants is in excess of 350.

 

Days 8 & 9: Uda Walawe to Tangalle

The trip from Uda Walawe to the southern coast is very scenic 4 hour drive. You will arrive in Tangalle in good time for a sunset cocktail on the beach overlooking the vast expanse of the Indian Ocean.

 

Days 10 & 11: Tangalle to Galle

After breakfast, perhaps a plateful of steaming string hoppers with potato and coconut milk curry, we travel along the south coast towards Galle. 

Galle

Old Galle is a UNESCO world heritage site; a unique example of a preserved 17th C colonial Fortress. The Galle Fort itself is still a living monument with a bustling community within the great ramparts, massive bastions, pepper pot towers, while narrow streets display its Dutch heritage with beckoning pillared verandas and fretwork facades. Walking around is best so you can peep through frangipani filled courtyards at houses, galleries or shops selling antiques, spices, pictures, nouveau-boule and hand-woven sarongs. Boutique hotels incongruously cheek by jowl with postage-stamp size cafes, so you are never far from a perfect sun-downer. Pondicherri meets Cadaques!

 

Day 12: Galle to Colombo

After a lazy breakfast we travel north up the west coast to Colombo. The trip to Colombo takes approximately 4 hours.

Colombo

A final stop in Colombo will not disappoint. A glimpse beneath the chaotic faade of this metropolis on the banks of the Indian Ocean will reveal a treasure of delights and surprises to the inquisitive visitor. We always encourage our guest to experience Colombo for at least a day or two. Colombo is not a city where crowds of tourist are shoved from one monument to the next. It is not a city of shopping malls or gigantic plasma screens pumping out advertisements night and day. It is a city with charming little hideaways waiting to be discovered. We have carefully handpicked the best shops and galleries, and the best restaurants. Sri Lanka In Style offers a personalized shopping tour of Colombo for those interested.

 

Day 13: Colombo to Airport

Depart in good time for your flight back home. The journey to the airport will take approximately 1 hours although it can take 1.5 hours during peak traffic hours.
