The Lower Hill Country

The lower hill country┬áis home to Kandy, the last independent kingdom and cultural hub of the island. This city in the hills holds Sinhalese tradition to a high esteem and is famous for its distinct music, dance and architecture, as well as the wondrous Temple of the Tooth and the Esala Perahera, a famous festival. The Knuckles mountain range is close by – hiking through this attraction makes for a great day out.
