Journey To The Upcountry

Day wise Itinerary
Day 1 : Kandy - Pinnawala - Kandy Temple - Botanical Garden

Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage - is situated northwest of the town of Kegalle, halfway between Colombo and Kandy. It was established in 1975 by the Sri Lanka wildlife department in a 100,000 square meter coconut property near the Maha Oya river. The orphanage was originally founded in order to afford care and protection to the many orphaned Elephants found in the wild.

Kandy - A World Heritage city and the second largest Sri Lanka set on a plateau surrounded by mountains, A World Heritage city and the second largest Sri Lanka set on a plateau surrounded by mountains, which are home to tea plantations and bio diverse rainforest. Traditions and culture remain undisturbed by European influence in the colonial era. The Royal Palace, now known as the "The Temple of the Tooth Relic" (of Lord Buddha), situated right beside the city’s beautiful centerpiece lake. Some days the skies seem perpetually bruised, with stubborn mist clinging to the hills surrounding. Delicate hill-country breezes impel the mist to gently part, revealing Kandy’s improbable forested halo.
Kandy is also home to one of the largest botanical gardens in South East Asia. The Gardens dates back to the 14th century and boasts over 4000 species of plants and many trees with significant histories. Visitors from the UK will be particularly interested in the Cannonball Tree planted by King George V. The tree is bent with its fruits, which resemble cannonballs hence the name

Day 2 : Nuwara Eliya - Tea Factory - City Tour

Nuwara Eliya, the emerald city of Sri Lanka, often referred as "Little England" for its cool climate and colonial style architecture)
While most British visitors struggle to recognize modern England in Nuwara Eliya, the toy-town ambience does have a rose-tinted English country village feel to it, though it comes with a disorienting surrealist edge. In earlier times, Nuwara Eliya (meaning ‘City of Light’) was the favoured cool-climate escape for the hard-working and hard-drinking English and Scottish pioneers of Sri Lanka’s tea industry. With its breath taking landscape at approx 1,868 m (6,128 ft) above sea level it enables the plantations to produce the finest tea in the world

Day 3 : Nuwara Eliya - Horton Plains

Wake up early this morning enthusiastic to walk to the “end of the world”.
Horton Plains – affectionately called World’s End is a National Park, on Sri Lanka's highest plateau over 2100m above sea level in the central mountains is a strange and tranquil region with an astounding variety of scenery – from misty mountains to grasslands, from marshes to ice cold streams, lakes and waterfalls. Sri Lanka's best flavoured “high grown” teas are from estates in the surrounding areas. Two highlights are the spectacular view from 'Worlds End' where the plateau plunges almost 1000m in a sheer drop and the beautiful “Bridal Veil” Bakers Falls. Distinctive flora with a high level of endemism, colourful butterflies, many rare endemic, resident or migrant birds and several species of Gauna including Sambhur, Bear Monkey, Barking Deer, Giant Squirrel, Fishing Cat, Wild Boar, Hare and even a few very rare sightings of Leopard are recorded. The perfect location for hiking and cycling with excellent trails and cool climate.

Day 4 : Ella

Welcome to everyone’s favourite hill-country village and the place to ease off the travel accelerator with a few leisurely days resting in your choice of some of the country’s best guesthouses. The views through Ella Gap are stunning, and on a clear night you can even spy the subtle glow of the Great Basses lighthouse on Sri Lanka’s south coast. Don’t be too laid-back though; definitely make time for easygoing walks through tea plantations to temples, waterfalls and viewpoints. After building up a hiking-inspired appetite, look forward to Sri Lanka’s best home-cooked food and the minisplurge of an extended Ayurvedic treatment.
