Highlights of the tour:
We will pick you up from your hotel in Kandy at 06.30 am and head to our adventure.
The starting point of our tour is at 2nd Rajasinghe Mawatha. Once we are there, we will provide you with an expert cycling guide, cycles with basic equipment, and a light snack with water throughout the tour.
During the excursion, we will be passing the beautiful Mahaveli river, passing by central and eastern Sri Lanka. At 208 mi (335 km) in length, it is Sri Lanka’s longest river. It rises on the Hatton Plateau on the western side of the island’s hill country, flows north through a tea- and rubber-growing region, and turns east near Kandy; it then turns north across the lowlands, receives its principal tributary, the Amban Ganga.
You will be passing by the Kandy war cemetery. Formerly known as Pitakande Military Cemetery, it was acquired originally by the military authorities, and was subsequently taken over by the Commission as a permanent war cemetery.
Kandy is in central Sri Lanka, 910 meters above sea level. It is 121 kilometers north-east of Colombo, from which it is easily reached by road. From the Botanical Gardens at Peridenya, take the road to Kandy. Just past the gardens, take a left turning at the roadside direction sign, down Lady Magdalene Drive. The Cemetery is approximately 1.5 kilometers along this road.
Next, we will visit Bahirawakande Temple and we will be viewing 360 degrees Kandy city from the viewpoint of the temple.
Climbing the numerous steps to the top seeing the white colossal statue of Buddha named Bahirawakanda Vihara gives one a sense of peace, serenity, and harmony; and a stunning and gorgeous panoramic view of charming Kandy.
We will be back at the hotel and take a rest of a few hours before starting our Kandy exploring tour.
After resting, we will proceed to the Temple of the tooth. The Temple of the Tooth Relic (the sacred tooth of the Buddha), is a famous pilgrimage site, one of the most famous Buddhist temples in the world.
It was built to protect the sacred tooth relic thought to belong to Lord Buddha, which has been enshrined in Sri Lanka for hundreds of years, as well as a host of other temples, visitors to the city can wander along Kandy Lake.
In the evening will proceed to watch a fascinating Kandyan dancing show.
The cultural show depicts various forms of Kandyan dancing, which was once native to the area but has now spread to different regions of the island. The show includes Magul Bera/Puja Netuma/Raban/Mayura Netuma/Pantheru Natuma/Gini Sisila/Ves Natuma(Firewalk).
Once your tour is concluded, you will be dropped off at your hotel, full of great memories!
