Bandarawela, 10km north of Haputale but noticeably warmer, is a busy market town that makes a good base for exploring the surrounding area. Due to its agreeable climate, it’s a popular area to retire to. Each Sunday morning the town has a lively market. Otherwise Bandarawela has little to attract tourists. It’s a good transport hub if you’re heading east or further into the Hill Country.
