Less than 1 day
This is for avid cyclists, who would like to see a side of Kandy that few travellers get to experience. This takes you around the Kandy tea plantations, on a medium-hard level 40-45km cycling trail on a gravel terrain. In addition to cycling, you'll also visit the local tea planting communities, experience tea picking and visit the tea planters' village. Enjoy a cup of hot tea with the traditional planters' snack ("Wade") with the Chief tea worker's wife. As this is a private trip, you also have the flexibility to customise it to your cycling preference.
