Kandy, Ella, Nuwara Eliya, Haputale, Hatton & Adam’s Peak
Kandy sits at a far lower altitude than the Tea Country and because of this can expect to enjoy higher temperatures and lower rainfall than in the hills to the south. Your journey from Kandy to the Cultural Triangle climbs an elevation of 700 meters, so you feel a drop-in temperature as you climb. The weather in the Tea Country is influenced by both monsoons, the result of which is a climate somewhat reminiscent of a Scottish autumn for much of the year. Sitting at nearly2,000 meters above sea level, the region is much cooler than elsewhere In Sri Lanka .
December marks the beginning of the Adam’s Peak pilgrimage season, which runs throughout the dry season until May.
