After the visitors finish their breakfast at the Kandy overnight hotel, the tuk-tuk trip to Pinnawala departs from Kandy at around 8 am. On the way to your Pinnawala Tuk Tuk Tour, the trip stops at a few tourist destinations.

The Pinnawala orphanage is the destination of the tour, which departs from Kandy. In Sri Lanka, Pinnawala is a unique location to watch elephants. The institute was founded in 1975 by the Sri Lanka Department of Wildlife Conservation to care for juvenile elephants that were abandoned and lost in the untamed forests. These lovely animals are adopted, raised, and reproduced in captivity. It is situated 13 kilometers northeast of Kegalle town in Pinnawala village. The world’s largest herd of captive elephants resides at the Pinnawala orphanage. From 9 am to 1 pm is the best time to visit the orphanage. As a result, this is when young elephants are fed milk and given their regular bath. The opportunity for the visitors to observe these domesticated elephants playing and bathing in the surrounding river is fantastic.

The Spice Garden will be the first place we pass on the way back to Kandy. Sri Lanka is known around the world for its exotic spices and plants. A trip to an herb garden is essential while traveling in Sri Lanka to gain a unique understanding of the lengthy history of herbs and spices on the island. At the Spice and Herbal Garden, you may observe the growth of turmeric, pepper seeds, carnations, cardamom, nutmeg, vanilla, cinnamon, cocoa beans, aloevera, and other spices in their natural habitat.

The tea factory and plantation will thereafter be the next stop. If you haven’t seen a tea plantation, your trip to Sri Lanka isn’t complete. We will walk you through a tea leaf’s journey from the plant to the cup because Sri Lanka is known for its distinctive tea culture.

The Peradeniya Royal Botanical Gardens, which are home to over 4,000 varieties of plants, from flowers to palm trees, are the last stunning location before the tour ends. From Kandy city, it is around 5.5 kilometers away. The Mahaweli River, Sri Lanka’s greatest river, borders the botanical garden. It is a stunning 147 acres in size.

The Pinnawala tuk-tuk tour concludes at the hotel at the end.
