Central Province

4
At the heart of Sri Lanka, Central Province encompasses a mountainous region dotted with tea plantations and colonial-era hill stations. Most of the area's mountain ranges and cloud forests feature on the World Heritage List and play an important role in the success story of Central Province tourism. While some visitors come here to admire the views of pristine mountain slopes covered in lush vegetation, others plan their trips around cultural and historic sites located in and around Kandy, the provincial capital that contains most of the area's top attractions. With so much rural and urban appeal, a Central Province vacation can be both outdoorsy and culturally rewarding. Arrange all the small, but important details of your Central Province trip itinerary using our Sri Lanka trip planner.
