Hanthana Mountain Range

Hanthana mountain range comprises of more than seven peaks dotted gracefully. The highest peak is the “Uura kanda” offering a delightful view with a steep slope but during windy days you cant even stand there

This mountain range spans from Galaha to Kandy with a spanning direction which is from north-west to south-east. The range is also a big hit with hikers and adventure seekers where they do a good hike by traveling up to the point which has seen rapid development in the form of communication towers.

Hanthana is spread on the outskirts of Kandy from which many glorious rivulets and streams flow. One such stream flows past the village of Udaperadeniya and the University. Among the seven peaks, the forth peak is the highest and the Katusukonda is the last peak and slightly dangerous part of this mountain range. If you want to cover the entire Hanthana range, you can start the hike from Nilambe Meditation Center side and end from Kandy side.
