ITINERARY

Day 1: Arrive in Sri Lanka – Kandy

Touching down in breathtaking Sri Lanka, wind through the last bastion of the Sinhala Kings as you head towards Kandy, set around a luminous man-made lake in Sri Lanka’s scenic Hill Country.

En route, get up close and personal with adorable baby elephants at the Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage where you could get to nurse a baby elephant and watch it bathe in the river.

Day 2: Kandy Sightseeing (B)

Witness the ritualistic drumming at the golden-roofed Temple of the Sacred Tooth Relic this morning, housing the tooth of the Buddha guarded in a gold casket, followed by a visit to a local gem museum and lapidary to see how they’re smoothed.

After, depending on time, wind through the stunning Peradeniya Botanic Gardens, once reserved exclusively for Kandyan royalty, the grounds house 60 hectares of orchids, stately palms, extraordinary Burma bamboo and umbrella-like canopies of botanic splendour.

Day 3: Kandy – Nuwara Eliya (B)

Go deeper into Sri Lanka’s mesmerising Hill Country this morning as you embark on a train journey to Nuwara Eliya, a resort capital hidden away in the central mountains and once a summer retreat for 19th-century British planets.

Lying in the heart of ‘tea country’, this quaint English-style town is a great base for exploration in the hills.

Day 4: Nuwara Eliya – Ella (B)

Fall in love with Ella over the next two days, as you embark on a nature hike to Little Adam’s Peak, overlooking rolling green hills and pristine tea plantations, before enjoying the misty hill panoramas with a soothing cup of Celyon or coffee at 98 Acres Resort.

Day 5: Ella Free Day (B)

Today is yours to explore at your leisure. You could see cascades of Ravana Ella crash down the sheer cliffs of the mountainside, walk across the train tracks of Demodara Nine Arch Bridge cloaked in pine and lush tea fields, or ascend to Ravana Cave and Temple.

Day 6: Ella – Colombo (B)

Head north today into the cosmopolitan buzz of Colombo’s stylish eateries, galleries and shops only moments from sprawling beachfront, before embarking on a city tour.

Day 7: Colombo – Depart Sri Lanka (B)

Your mesmerising Hill Country escapade comes to an end today as you’re transferred to the airport for your flight home to Australia.
