Nestled between mountains in inland Sri Lanka, Kandy proudly bears its World Heritage Site designation while remaining culturally independent and colorfully picturesque.
Take a break from the city and head to Royal Botanical Gardens and Pinnawala Elephant Orphanage. Temple of the Sacred Tooth Relic and Bahiravokanda Vihara Buddha Statue are good opportunities to explore the local culture. You'll find plenty of places to visit near Kandy: Victoria Golf & Country Resort (in Rajawella), Nelligala International Buddhist Center (in Murutalawa) and Bambaragala Viharaya (in Teldeniya). Spend the 11th (Thu) in the pleasant surroundings of Elephant Freedom Project. Next up on the itinerary: explore the activities along Kandy Lake, tour the pleasant surroundings at Knuckles Forest Reserve, take in the dramatic scenery at Ramboda Waterfall, and discover the deep blue sea with a scuba or snorkeling tour.

Plan my trip to Kandy with suggested itineraries provided by Inspirock.

Moscow, Russia to Kandy is an approximately 14.5-hour flight. Due to the time zone difference, you'll lose 2.5 hours traveling from Moscow to Kandy. Finish your sightseeing early on the 26th (Fri) to allow enough time to travel to Kalutara.

Kalutara ©
A popular beachside getaway just an hour south of Colombo, Kalutara is as recognizable for its enormous white Buddhist stupa as for its inviting white-sand beaches.
Get outdoors at Bentota Beach and Beruwala Beach. Your inner history buff will appreciate Kande Viharaya Temple and Kajugaswatta Temple. Change things up with these side-trips from Kalutara: Ayesha Gems and Jewellers (in Aluthgama), Bentota (Sea Turtle Protection Association & Bentota River) and Beruwala (Masjid ul Abrar & Brief Garden - Bevis Bawa). Next up on the itinerary: see majestic marine mammals with Asya Tours, contemplate the waterfront views at Madu River, stroll through Ahungalla Beach, and take in the spiritual surroundings of Kalutara Bodhiya.
