  Double Coconuts
by freya_heaven

The Peradeniya Botanical Gardens are 6km our of Kandy on the Colombo road. They are the largest Botanical gardens in Sri Lanka, covering 60 hectacres.

They have one of the world most impressive collections of Orchids (according to James). Try to spend at least half a day here, its beautiful.

Dont miss the avenue of Double Coconut trees, each weighing between 10 - 20 kg!


Kandy, Hill Country
