Hill Country

Moving inland, Sri Lanka’s mesmerizing beauty truly lies in the central regions of the island, where rainforests carpet towering peaks, undulating tea plantations monopolise the horizon, vast wilderness areas protect a National Geographic-worthy roll call of wildlife and ancient cities rise up in all their historical and cultural glory. Our favourite inland spot is the calm-inducing Hill Country.  Lovely laidback Kandy lies at its heart, featuring old temples, vibrant local life, brightly robed monks and pottering pilgrims.

Further south is the tea stronghold of Nuwara Eliya, a place that has kept its colonial hill station roots from the 19th century British rule. This region is also home to the towering  Adams Peak, known by many religions for the Sri Pada (sacred footprint) of Adam when he fell to earth from heaven – or so the story goes! We highly recommend keen walkers to take the journey to the top at sunrise for spectacular views and quieter paths. Depending on the route you take, it should take between 5-6 hours to complete the walk.
