Due to busy, schedule I stayed only one night. Closed to Nuwara-eliya Gregory Lake, atmosphere is very cool. UPPER LAKE lodge staff(before McLARENS lodge as per Caretaker) welcome me very warmly. The staff member is very helpful. Had light breakfast. Tea he made is very tasty. Hope to visit with my friends next time.
