For those feeling a little more adventurous, Strathisla tea estate bungalow is perfectly positioned to enjoy day trips to all the major sites in the cultural triangle; Kandy being 50mins to the south while Sigiria is only 80mins to the north. Despite its proximity to the major sites, Strathisla guest house is located in an area completely off the tourist track and therefore makes it the perfect point from which to explore the breathtaking scenery of the highlands. Come and experience the old world charm of Strathisla tea estate bungalow; it will be sure to captivate you!

About the neighbourhood
Strathisla is located in the foothills of the stunning, World Heritage-listed Knuckles Ranges described because they resemble the knuckles of the human hand.
