Udawattakele Forest Trek
Udawattakele Forest - Kandy ~
How often does one get to live freely like the royalty of the past? Well, our island gives you the opportunity to wander into a jungle that was once forbidden to commoners, and reserved only for the ‘blue-blooded’.
Situated half an hour away from Cinnamon Citadel Kandy is the lush Udawattakele Forest. It is home to over 400 species of plants, 70 species of birds and 32 diverse species of butterflies and various mammals.
As you explore this treasure, its atmosphere and beauty will blow you away. The mist covering the hills and the slight nip in the air will make the trek around the forest even more enjoyable. The short Lovers’ Walk to Lady McCarthy's drive, Lady Torrington's Road, or Lady Gordon's Road make for a visual delight.
The trek is spotted with intriguing sights, like the medieval rock dwellings of Buddhist monks and hermits and the Garrison Cemetery; a British military burial ground. If you like being around nature, Udawattakale is one of the peak adventures you must take on.
