Next Day
From Kandy we continue into Sri Lanka's hill country. By train we climb 1400 meters. The hill country in the island's center contrasts with the coast in temperature, culture, and economy. The altitude keeps away stifling heat and buoys the region into a perpetually cool spring atmosphere. Tea plantations carpet the region in lush greenery and support the local economy.
Say hi to colorful passengers.
Sri Lanka offers flexible train service. If you can't afford a ticket you can hang from the side or sit on top of the railcars.
Every hilltop covered by a tea plantation.
