The view from the terrace is spectacular. You can sit and watch the clouds and mist surround these mountains of the central province for an entire day. Check with the staff on what time the train passes through the hills. The authentic Sri Lankan fare is delicious too!

Our driver recommended this place on our way out of Kandy. We had the buffet which was excellent with a wide range of dishes, while admiring the scenery. I am still dreaming of the gorgeous tomato and lemongrass soup!
