The mountains of Sri Lanka make an interesting change in landscape. From Kandy, a historical city with the famous relic "the tooth of Buddha", to Nuwara Eliya, the change in scenery and temperature is quite remarkable. Heading into the mountains also uncovers Sri Lankan number one export product; Tea! We were lucky enough to find an excellent guide who was willing to take us off the beaten track to a small Tamil village in the mountains. A hefty but very rewarding 8 hour or 22km trek!
