Kandy & Hill-Country

Kandy and Hill-country

kandy and hill countryStrategically nestled amidst three mountain ranges, Kandy was initially built in this location as a natural fortress against an attack. Kandy was not an easy target for the foreign invaders who could easily gain control of coastal areas without too much loss to their forces.

Kandy’s main architectural monuments date mainly from the 19th Century when King Vikrama Rajasinha, the last King of Kandy, constructed new buildings. At the time of surrender  to the British in 1815, King Rajasinha was captured, imprisoned and finally deported to India where he died in 1832. The most visited places of cultural, religious and natural interest in Kandy are the Sri Dalada Maligawa and the Peradeniya Botanical Gardens.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Feedback

We  booked two holidays with this company, one in 2014 and another in August 2017. We had great experiences on both holidays. In 2014 they booked us at a lovely cottage, beautifully located in the hill country with friendly staff and a great naturalist guide. For the recent holiday they put in touch with an excellent diving instructor who runs his own place and both my wife and I enjoyed three days of diving as well as got our PADI diving certificates. All in all, I think that they have a strong focus on finding high quality locations, good guides and other personnel. I would recommend them without hesitation.
