On the way, take a halt to visit the Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage. A shelter home for abandoned, injured and orphaned elephants that are taken care of by caretakers and volunteers. Walk with a herd of elephants up to the river nearby to watch them play and bathe. Later, continue towards Kandy, the last capital of ancient Sri Lankan kings. Placed amid hills, Kandy is the country's second largest city and is also one of its 7 World Heritage sites that has blessed with abundant natural beauty. This lovely city boasts of lush grasslands, splendid lake, Sri Lanka's longest river and mist-clad mountains. This place has a lot to offer to its visitors. On arrival, complete the check-in.

Check-in is followed by sightseeing in Kandy. The first visit of the day is to Temple of tooth Relic, locally known as Sri Dalada Maligawa. This temple is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, which is also one of the most revered Buddhist sites in the world. Next in line is the visit to the Peradeniya Botanical Gardens, a heaven for nature enthusiasts. Spread in a verdant space of 147 acres of land, this garden is visited by over 1.2 million people every year. It houses around 300 varied varieties of orchids, medicinal plants, palm trees and spices too.

Day 2: Kandy – Nuwara Eliya (2.5 hours)

Post breakfast on day 2 at the hotel, get ready to leave for Nuwara Eliya, fondly referred to as the City of Lights. Encircled by lush tea plantations and hills, this lovely city has been blessed with a pleasant weather, colorful meadows, green ambiance and superb views of the mountains and valleys. This place is also called 'Little England', a favorite hill town of the British who founded it as a typical English hamlet. A country house like hill club with trophies and hunting pictures, formal dinner cloth, a bricked post office, a horse race course and an 18 hole golf course are ample proofs of the same. On reaching, check-in at the hotel.

Explore the popular attractions of Nuwara Eliya including Victoria Park, the golf course and the trout streams. Later, you can enjoy boat riding and fishing at Lake Gregory. Your next visit can be to a tea factory where you can see the production of the finest Orange Pekoe tea in the world from the slow-growing tea bushes of this highland region. Some of the other attractions that you may also visit include Haggala Gardens and Seetha Eliya. While the latter one is a temple from the great Hindu epic Ramayana, the former one is a temperate hill-country garden where one can spot leisurely low-country lotus and water lily floating in pristine environs.

Go for a leisure walk while savoring the serenity and scenic beauty.

During the city tour, enjoy boating in River Madhu where you treat your eyes to the wonderful scenery and lush mangroves covering several islets. If you want, you can also visit the Turtle Hatchery here. Opened in 1981 by the Wildlife Protection Society in 1981, this hatchery is the main turtle nesting site. You can spot large tanks that contain new born turtles. Once these turtle babies are fed and they are 2 to 4 days old, they are released in the sea, generally during dark hours when it is safe.
