Cycle in the midst of nature on the Bellwood crossing cycle tour - 1 Day

FROM £ 100 (USD 130)

Sri Lanka Day Tours provides a half-day cycling tour through a scenic suburban nature trail from Kandy to Belwood and back. This route is ideal for keen cyclists, as it involves a lot of steep and rugged terrain.

Start off near the Kandy clock tower and almost immediately come across a series of ascents and descents through local villages and tea estates, among breath-taking scenery. You will come to Thalathuoya, where a steep ascent to your destination of Belwood begins. After Belwood, you will encounter another series of rigorous ascents and descents until you get to Hanthana. From there, the terrain gets rugged. The roads will be hard gravel, which makes it a hard area to traverse. Once you reach Ukuwela, the terrain becomes easier and you will be able to enjoy an easy, laid back ride all the way back to Kandy.

The terrain will be hard in about 70% of the 24.5km journey, but rewarding, as you will encounter many different kinds of exotic flora and fauna along the way. There is always the possibility of seeing rare and beautiful birds and different varieties of primates.

This tour is recommended for keen, experienced cyclists, as it will be highly strenuous on novice cyclists. Sri Lanka Day Tours will provide mountain bikes, helmets, and other safety gear to all participants as well as water and snacks. You may bring additional food and beverages with you, as the first half of this tour is sure to sap a lot of energy. Our experienced guides will show you the way, and ensure that you have the best cycling experience from Kandy to Belwood.
