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.

All About Curry - Private Cooking class

Manoshi was a great cookery teacher. I loved the private one on one class, as I got to be involved with all the preparation and cooking. The dishes we made were veggie friendly and some of the best I tasted in all my trip in Sri Lanka.

She organised a pick up and drop off from my hotel, making it easy for me as a traveller. The venue of the cookery class is well equipped and spacious.

The ingredients were all laid out beautifully, and she packed up leftovers for me at the end.

I really recommend this cookery class for anyone interested in easy Sri Lankan dishes.

All About Curry - Private Cooking class

We had a great time doing it our cookery class with Manoshi. Clear instructions and an interactive experience, not just watching! Amazing smells and tastes, we loved the dishes she showed us. Now we have the recipes, will definitely try them at home.
Thank you so much Manoshi.

Hike the Adam's Peak and Catch the Sunrise

We made a trip from Kandy to the Adams Peak. He showed us not just the Adams Peak. We discovered a few other areas like a Tea Factory, went river rafting and he also told us much about sri lankan culture and animals! We liked it very much! We hardly recommend this guy to all people how want to explore sri lanka with a private guide!
