Udawatta Kele Sanctuary @ Kandy

Located on a hill right on the north edge of Kandy is the Udawatta Kele Sanctuary, basically the natural version of the Peridanyi Botanical Gardens. The difference here is that the trails are carved out of a natural jungle and you can actually get a bit lost in-between them. Although the nature here is quite beautiful, I highly recommend bringing a couple beers along with you for the hike to help stave off boredom.

Since Udawatta is only took a couple hours to explore, afterword I made my way across town toward the Bahiravokanda Vihara Buddha Statue. The Buddha, well it's kind of like any of the other giant Buddhas I've stumbled across, but the view from the hill made the walk worth it.
