The city of Kandy is located in the geographical centre of the island of Sri Lanka and is surrounded by thick rainforest.
When I visited Kandy about 25 years ago, I remember staying in respectable hostel type accommodation on the hills surrounding the city. It was a few kilometres walk downhill to the main attraction in Kandy, the beautiful Kandy Lake, and the city itself.
The train trip from the capital Colombo through the mountains covered in thick rainforest is a memorable experience and highly recommended.
