Water Body · Hidden Gem · Nature / Park
Nestled between green hills and a forest reserve, Kande-ela Reservoir offers canoe rides and mesmerizing views. This elongated artificial lake encircled by dark green foliage occasionally speckled with pink patches of flowers stretches for 3 km (1.86 mi). Not many tourists visit the area, so you will be able to take in the serene atmosphere and make some memorable photos without having to dodge big crowds. If you get hungry, look for the vendors selling hot vada (savory fried doughnuts) and strawberries. You can plan Nuwara Eliya trip in no time by asking Inspirock to help create your itinerary.
