Sri Lanka's famous Hill Country is a captivating combination of nature's creation and man-made adaptation. In places steep green hills rise to jagged peaks, while in others, the slopes are covered in perfectly manicured tea plantations. Close to Kandy, a series of recumbent folds, like the knuckles of a clenched fist, make up the Knuckles mountain range. Although often shrouded in cloud, the range is one of the loveliest natural attractions in Sri Lanka, and well worth a day hiking through the changing terrain of grasslands and rugged mountain peaks, punctuated with streams and waterfalls. Shaped
by the British colonial era and the introduction of tea production to the island, southern Hill Country holidays in Sri Lanka offer something very different to the north, and the region is best explored by hopping on and off what is generally considered one of the most beautiful train journeys in Asia - from Kandy to Badulla.
