Here you’ll be able to explore the 150 acres of trees, lawns and flowering shrubs, including an arboretum of more than 10,000 trees, and find out more about the exotic crops such as coffee, tea, nutmeg, rubber and cinchona (quinine) which were tested here before going on to become important to Sri Lanka's economy. You’ll also see stands of bamboos from Burma, Japan, China and the East Indies, and a fine collection of orchids. The gardens’ centrepiece is an artificial lake in the shape of the island of Sri Lanka.

Kandy to Habarana
This morning you’ll head to Habarana, stopping en route at the Dambulla Cave Temple, a UNESCO World Heritage Site which dates back to the first century BC. This complex of five caves was used as a refuge by an ancient king who, on regaining his throne, commissioned magnificent carved images here. These were added to by later kings, and the caves now contain over 150 images of the Buddha, as well as ancient cave inscriptions and 19th-century paintings. You’ll also visit the Matale Spice Garden before checking in to your hotel in Habarana.

Day 4
Habarana to Polonnaruwa
This morning you’ll head to Sigiriya to visit Lion Rock, one of the island’s seven World Heritage sites. This ancient rock fortress and ruined castle was once the home to King Kasyapa. The entrance to the original fortress was through the mouth of a lion, although only a part of the massive paws remain today. You’ll have time here explore Sigiriya’s gardens, frescos and mirror wall, as well as to learn about the Lion Rock’s dramatic history. After an afternoon at leisure, this evening you’ll visit the medieval city of Polonnaruwa, another UNESCO World Heritage Site, which became Sri Lanka’s capital in the 10th-12th century AD after the decline of Anuradhapura. The landscape of this region is dotted by huge man-made reservoirs, the most famous of which is the Parakrama Samudra or the Sea of Parakrama, larger than Colombo’s harbour. You’ll visit the Royal Palace complex, including the King’s Palace and Audience Hall, the Quadrangle and the spectacular Gal Vihare complex of four massive images of the Buddha, cut from a single slab of granite.
