From the airport you will be traveling directly to your hotel in Kandy by private limousine transfer. Depending on your arrival time you can stop on the way to visit the Elephant Orphanage (optional).
The city of Kandy is host to the annual Esala Perahera, one of the oldest and grandest of all Buddhist festivals, featuring dancers, jugglers, musicians, fire-breathers, and lavishly decorated elephants. This is held to celebrate Buddha's conception and his leaving of the family home many years later. The Kandy Esala Perahera lasts for ten days. The Sinhalese term 'Perahera' means a parade of musicians, dancers, singers, acrobats and various other performers accompanied by a large number of caparisoned Tuskers and other elephants, parading the streets in celebration of a religious event.
In the evening your driver / guide will show you to the best view-point location for the Perahera route of the day. If requested he will also pick you up again at your convenience.
