One of the most beautiful parts of Sri Lanka, the Hill Country is a region which is home to a multitude of wondrous gems – from the scenic, misted emerald peaks and hillsides of the tea plantations to the cascading waterfalls. The ruggedly beautiful scenery will leave you in awe. One of the best ways to appreciate this is by taking the train from Kandy to the hills. As the train rather steadily makes its way up, you will pass through small towns, admire views of tea plantations and pickers at work, gaze over the valleys and watch as the locals board and alight the train. Hugely atmospheric.
During your time in this area there is no shortage of wonderful activities to keep you entertained. Explore the Horton Plains National Park and observe the sudden escarpment known as “World’s End” which drops 880 metres below, learn about the art of making tea with a tasting on a tea estate, take a walk or go cycling from your accomodation with a guide if you wish or go kayaking or even white water rafting at certain times of year. Those keen on adventure can even make the journey to Adam's Peak during the season, a pilgrimage site that requires leaving one's bed in the middle of the night to see the sunrise.
