  • Private tour
  • Book now pay later*

The Hanthana mountain range in Kandy is popular among those who like to go hiking, camping, bird watching and be close to nature in any way. Local songwriters, too, have lyricised the scenic beauty and tranquility of these mountains. Located 1240 m above sea level, the Hanthana mountain range stretches all the way from the Kandy city to the town of Galaha, 20 km south. The freshwater springs on the western end of Hanthana feed the waters of the Mahaweli river, and the tributaries of the river separate the individual hills of the range.

Sri Lanka is a country with rapid economic and technological growth. The Hanthana area was chosen as the location for a few radio transmission towers due to the optimum height provided for maximum coverage. You will be able to see these towers up close on the way.

We pick you up at 6:00 AM from your hotel in Kandy.

Proceed to the starting point.

After a briefing start the hike. Known for its many species of birds, the Hanthana mountain range is ideal for bird watching.

The trail includes several ascents as well as descents.

You will be hiking among tea estates of the “Upper Lance” before reaching the Hanthana mountain range.

Take lunch after traversing the Hanthana range.

You will come across a footpath leading to Kandy. This footpath is ideal for watching birds, and to see the picturesque landscapes of the towns of Kandy, Galaha, and Peradeniya.

You will get a chance to visit the Sri Lanka Tea Industry Museum, where you will be able to get an insight into the history of how Sri Lanka became the manufacturer of the best tea in the world.

After the museum stop, we will get into our vehicle and head back to the hotel.
