One of the highlights of my trip to sri lanka last summer was the stay in Haputale at Dias Rest. I wanted an authentic experience living with locals and a nice view overlooking the hills. At white Monkey I got both. The family is friendly and helpful. Dias is the most experienced guide of the area. His family is lovely. The room was big with big windows directly overlooking the famous hills of Haputale. It reminded me of a place I stayed in the south of France with a view on the vineyards. Except of course the price was a loooot cheaper and the experience just as nice.
