The mountain area is full of tea plantations and number of estates from the British colonial time and wonderful smaller and larger picturesque waterfalls. The roads are narrow and slow it takes...

Really enjoyed my recent visit to the tea country. I visited several plantations. However, the best plantation for informative information was the Pedro plantation. I travelled with Blue Lanka Tours, but you can also get a train Nuwara Eliya area from Colombo too.

After a Sri Lankan country-wide tour, Nuwara Eliya region was one of the top highlights. Tea country is simply breathtaking complete with terraced tea-covered hills and unusual sights. Highlights included: Heritance Tea Hotel for a cup of tea. Train trip from Nuwara Eliya to Ella. Horton's Plain an World's End.

Fondly referred to as 'Little England' due to it's cool weather, this is a year round holiday resort to many locals. The temperatures drop to single digits (C) on most nights and when the sun is out during the day it is pleasant with no humidity associated with the coastal areas of the country. Several accommodation options are available but... More
