A forest reserve in the midst of Kandy.
Udawatta Kele, a sizable forest reserve situated in the middle of Kandy town, has with time become a favourite spot where people come to walk around and experience nature. Morning times are ideal for bird watching and guided tours can be arranged, depending on the place you are staying. Otherwise you can just take a stroll through the forest at anytime, albeit after 6, where paved gravel pathways lead inside the forest looping around. A detailed map at the entrance will show you where each path leads and even without a guide you can find your way passing through ‘The Lover’s Walk’, ‘Marble Seat’, Iron wood forest and buddhist monasteries. An entrance fee will be charged at the front gate and if there is a guide or an attendant do not hesitate to ask about the history of the forest as it is quite fascinating. However, a note of warning – it would be better not to tread pathways that are overgrown with shrubs and weed as there are wild animals around.
