Hunnasgiriya is one of the best known mountain summits of Kandy, yet its off the beaten track due to the less known trekking route. It is such an advantage to explore a day of nature and culture mixed with Kandyan tea plantations, natural streams and trekking in a less touristic area. The total distance of the walking trail is approximately 19km and the best time to start or to leave Kandy is before 6 a.m. Walking trail starts from a small town located close to mountains and the breakfast stop is 5 k.m away at a lush tea plantation with a view where a warm cup of ginger tea can be elixir. Our second stop is at a beautiful view point after a walk through a hairpin bend track in an extraordinary tea plantation with un-pruned tea bushes. We will be walking further up the mountains exploring the Hindu culture of residents from the line style housing belong to tea estates and Hindu temples are colorful, and this is the last human habitat. Cloud forrest beyond the human habitat is where a hidden water stream to walk across, and its refreshing. This is our picnic spot. The walk through the cloud forrest to discover the summit of scenic Hunnasgiriya mountain is our final stage of the hike
