Kandy View Point, Kandy
(3.5/5 based on 440+ reviews on the web)
Climb the hill by Kandy Lake to reach Kandy View Point and receive a view of the city that cannot be beaten. As a popular tourist spot, the area brings in a large amount of peddlers, though they often sell sub-par items. The area also has a reputation for high pickpocket activity, so keep an eye on your belongings. From the hill, you can enjoy great views over the lake and the city as a whole. To visit Kandy View Point and other attractions in Kandy, use our Kandy tourist route planner.

  • Not a bad point overlooking the city. But I would not go. Something over natural not to see and not to photograph. View from the Buddha Temple is much steeper.

  • My first sample of the view of Kandy and I could not have been more pleased. The view is unobstructed although construction work was on-going. I was there in the evening, and sunset at this view point...  more »
  • It's nice to overlook the city of Kandy, however don't worry if you miss this, it's not exactly breathtaking. There are many more sites in Sri Lanka to get an amazing view. Try Ella for amazing views.
