The ancient city of Kandy is surrounded by lush green mountain ranges and tea plantations with an abundance of wildlife Kandy is undoubtedly one of the most beautiful cities in Sri Lanka and if beauty weren’t enough, the city has a long interesting history to discover. Kandy was the last ruling place of the Sinhalese Kings and as such Kandyan culture and arts have become integral to Sri Lankan society. There are endless activities on offer in Kandy and some excellent nature walks so it is well worth staying one or two days if you have the time

Things to see and do:

Pinnewala Elephant Orphanage is close by with a herd of about 150 elephants roaming free in the extensive grounds and are brought to a river to bath twice daily which is a wonderful experience

Check out Millennium Elephant Foundation located close to Pinnewala which offers walking in the jungle with elephants and an opportunity to have a bath with these gentle giants-  We support NO elephant riding in Sri Lanka so when you visit here please ask to walk alongside the elephants to help protect the elephants of Sri Lanka against cruelty. www  Elephants can be appreciated more when seen in the wild or the several safari parks available
