A guided tour of the botanical gardens with a Botanist – Peradeniya

Experience Overview

GENERAL DESCRIPTION: The Peradeniya Royal Botanical Gardens is the largest of the botanical gardens of Sri Lanka and the finest of its kind in Asia. In the Mediterranean climate of Kandy, the gateway to the central highlands, the Gardens lies at an elevation of 460 meters above sea-level, tightly bounded on three sides by the loop of the River Mahaweli (Great Sandy River), Sri Lanka’s largest river. During WWII the gardens were the headquarters of the allied command for the pacific.

EXPERIENCE DESCRIPTION: Your guide will buy your entrance. Your chauffer guide will wait for you in the vehicle outside. It’s a leisurely walk in a circular fashion. Our expert in Botany is a walking encyclopedia. Even if you have very little interest in Botany he makes the visit interesting and insightful with plenty of quirks and little side stories. For some it’s the best visit of them all in Sri Lanka.

Includes: We provide a guide, water, tea and vehicle.
Duration: 1.5 hours.
Difficulty: Easy
Suitable for children: Yes, the wide open spaces are great for kids who love to explore
