Climate & Weather in Kandy

In general, Sri Lanka is rather prominent with its exotic summer weather through out the year. But of course, just like any other countries, certain areas have a certain temperature which constantly changes in some places, or merely the same all year.

The weather in Kandy & Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka has a tropical monsoon climate. Average temperatures are quite high, varying between 27 and 29 degrees Celsius. However, because Sri Lanka is surrounded by sea, a cooling breeze can be found everywhere.

The Northern and Eastern parts of the country are dry areas, while the wet zone can be found in the South Western region. If you are traveling to the Central Highlights, you will be surprised by the drop in temperature due to the high mountains – make sure to pack your warm clothes when going to for instance Nuwara Eliya. This mountain area, together with Kandy, are always experiencing a mixed climate.

Day trip to the 8th World Wonder: Sigiriya Lion Rock

Thank you Kamal for arranging a great tour for me and my friends. We really made loads of great memories. Thanks for the concern and great care provided. We know we could ENT have done so much if not for your great planning. Thank you for standing us dinner on your account after a great eventful day. Received the memorable beautiful photos you have taken of us. Thanks again. Take care🙂

1 Full Day Exploring Kandy

I’m traveling solo round Sri Lanka and wanted a few days soaking up some Kandy culture and a sampling the atmosphere of the tea plantations. Dushan sorted everything out for me and escorted me with gentle charm during my stay. This man knows where to go for the best dance shows and what to do to see the most interesting temples at less crowed times. He gives you all the interesting information, without overwhelmingly you with detail. When I come back to Sri Lanka I will book him again. Big thanks Dushan!
