Explore the best sights around Kandy in this day excursion!


There are many special places to visit in Kandy!

Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage is an orphanage, nursery and captive breeding ground for wild Asian elephants located at Pinnawala village. It is notable for having the largest herd of captive elephants in the world. The orphanage was originally founded to afford care and protection to many of the orphaned wild elephants found wandering in the forests of Sri Lanka. It was established in 1975 by the Sri Lanka Department of Wildlife Conservation.

Ceylon Tea is considered as the best tea in the world. It is sold everywhere. Tea Estates first introduced here by British. Tea pluckers work on the slopes, butterfly-like in their colourful sarees.

Kandyan dancing and drumming is Sri Lanka's iconic performing art, and you're unlikely to spend long in the city without seeing a troupe of performers going about their (rather noisy) business, clad in elaborate traditional costumes, with dancers twirling, stamping and gyrating to a pulsating accompaniment of massed drumming
