Bandarawela enjoys a high altitude in the tea country and offers a cool, comfortable climate ideal for the many walking opportunities this area provides. Bandarawela is well-positioned right in the middle of Sri Lanka’s sprawling hill country, and its high elevation means that the stunning walking trails of this area all have awe-inspiring views as a backdrop.
