Your day of sightseeing in the central highlands of Sri Lanka begins with a pick up from your Kandy hotel, where you guide will first take you to see the biggest Buddha in Asia, the Bahiravokanda Vihara Buddha Statue. Head to Katukithula, and learn about tea and tea processing, from picking picking the leaves at the plantation to rolling, fermentation, and sieving at the Glenloch Tea Factory. You will learn all about tea, sampling different types of leaves that make different types of tea and try a refreshing cup of tea with the option of buying some to take home.
Adventurers looking for a great trek in Sri Lanka won't go wrong with this trip to the Knuckles Mountain Range, departing from Kandy. With its beautiful forest trails, it's no wonder that this is the country's most famous trek route. From your hotel pick up in Kandy, you'll first pass by some of the local rice fields on the way to Knuckles. Rice continues to be the staple food source in the country, particularly in the rural areas. Past the fields, you'll finally reach Knuckles and the hike begins.
