On the Way to Hanthana
The hill capital, Kandy is very picturesque when you see the Hanthana Mountain Range as the backdrop. The climb to the top of Hanthana is a good hike for a beginner. The more popular hike is to travel up to the point where you find communication towers. The Hanthana is a mountain range and you could make a more challenging one by trying a few more. The range comprises atleast seven peaks.
The top of the mountain is quite windy and you find lush green coarse grass all over. The scenery from the top is spectacular. You can view the entire Kandy City from there. Also you can see the solitary Alagalla mountain from North West and the Knuckles Range towards North East in the distance.
