An intense ride in a scenic setting - from Kadugannawa to Gampola - 1 Day

FROM £ 90 (USD 120)

Sri Lanka Day Tours provides the Kadugannawa to Gampola cycling tour – a demanding ride in the outskirts of Kandy, perfect for keen cyclists.

The tour starts from Kadugannawa town and will involve a lot of steep, mountainous terrain, including gravel and tarmac roads. The area is full of lush vegetation and agricultural land. You may also see primates and birds who inhabit the area.

On your way you will pass several small villages. Stop by at a local house and enjoy a snack or a home-made cup of tea to boost your energy levels, as it will be needed for this cycle tour. Take some time to chat to locals who are known for their hospitality, politeness, and sense of humour.

Ride through tea estates and visit one of the tea factories, where you will be able to experience the tea manufacturing process, still using old-fashioned techniques. Sri Lankan (Ceylon) tea is famous for being the best in the world.

Although this route is only 13km, and takes approximately 2 hours, as mentioned above, it is a hard cycling tour. It is therefore recommended for keen cyclists who enjoy a hard cycling session, and not for those who often stop to take photographs.

Sri Lanka Day Tours will provide water and a snack for all participants, as well as bicycles and helmets. We will also provide an experienced guide who will show you the way and allow easy communication with locals, if needed. Basic safety rules will also be explained to you before the tour begins.

The route alternatively can be taken from Gampola to Kadugannawa upon request.
