A beautiful and challenging bike trail (42 kms) through the Hanthana Mountain Range and tea plantations.
Get away from the bustle of Kandy while you peak behind the curtains of Kandy’s beautiful outskirts. Kandy is the cultural capital of Sri Lanka and with it brings a lot of tourists. Our trail takes you out of the Kandy town to see what life is like for the locals in the area.
Your route will start close to the beautiful Peradeniya University and then snake away from Kandy town. The route is dotted with fruit trees that our guide will be happy to point out. You then continue to climb into Tea country. Beautiful winding roads with tea plantations on either side before finally riding down back into Kandy town. The ride is 42kms long and will take around 4 hours to complete. We will transfer you back to your hotel in Kandy via tuk tuk.
