Kandy View Point, Kandy
(3.5/5 based on 420+ 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.

  • This "viewpoint" is a stop on the side of the road with the taxi/TukTuk, views from the Hill on the Lake, the temple and the city. Get off, make photos, finished. You missed nothing sure, if you leave out this stop in Kandy. Also is not a welcoming place built there, overall!

  • Kandy view point is the perfect location, from where you can have a wonder view of the city, kandy lake and Bahiravokanda Vihara Buddha Statue. 
  • Nothing much to see except the city view. Sights over in 10 min. But then overall Kandy does not have anything significant to show.
