“The views as you drive up to Nuwara Eliya are stunning and a cup of tea has never tasted so good!”
This beautiful town is set in the heart of the Sri Lankan tea-country, (Tea Plantations). The architecture of Nuwara Eliya reminds the visitor of the English countryside. Situated at 1890 metres above sea level, the weather here is cool and fresh; it is a retreat away from the hustle and bustle of Colombo. Acres and acres of tea with its lush green foliage extend for miles across the hills.
Sri Lanka is the world’s leading producer of high quality tea and no visit to the hill country is complete without a visit to a tea estate and the chance to purchase some of the world’s finest flavoured tea. We found the visit to a tea plantation very interesting…almost everyone leaves them vowing never to drink tea made with teabags again. We can advise on the best hotels for exploring this serene retreat with breathtaking views.
