Day 02: Kandy / Hanthana / Kandy

Loolecondera Estate -

Fancy walking in the place where the very first patch of tea was planted on the Island. Where James Taylor, the pioneer of Ceylon tea planted the first seedlings. It’s wonderful how a little experiment by Taylor has turned into something so big and successful, to the extent the name of the Island became a byword for tea. The locals sure do still love and respect Taylor. The first ever tea patch planted here is known as No 7 field. A rock seat used by Taylor, known as Taylor’s seat affords the most beautiful views of the surrounding mountains. They say it was from this seat that Taylor planned and dreamed about the tea plantations in Sri Lanka. Then, there are the charming ruins of Taylor’s cottage. The tea estate is one of the cleanest and most beautifully kept. It’s crazily picture-perfect. And it’s incredible how it has everything, history, scenery, and fresh air.

Evening you will take leisure walks around lake and there is an opportunity to see a cultural dance and fire-walking performance in the evening.
