Today is a climbing day. First 30kms are undulating and then the climbing starts up to Kandy. It’s about 20kms of climbing till lunch. Our rides are fully supported so you can choose to stop or start riding at any point during the ride. We normally stop 5 kms out of Kandy and then transfer to the hotel to avoid cycling on the busy roads.

Kandy is a city that sleeps, that’s why our food walk start at 6PM. We start at the iconic Royal Bar. Try out the local Arrack and bites to set the tone before heading out for some gluttony.
