We took the 7am local bus from Kelburne to Dambetenna Factory and then a Tuk Tuk (Rs. 800 one way without bargaining!) to Lipton's Seat. We admired the clear view and had Dhal vade and roti at the shop and walked down. The views are amazing and it's lovely to walk among the tea plantation. We took two short cuts down stone steps. We got back to Kelburne by 11am. Beautiful day!

This is a great place to visit on a clear day with stunning views. The journey up is best by tuc-tuc as the road is very narrow - it's a great scenic journey up and well worth the visit.

Lipton's seat is a scenic view point situated at the edge of Dambethenna tea estate. Sir Thomas Lipton was used to enjoy the view from this place when he was at Dambethenna estate. The place is situated about 15 km from the town. Haputhale-Dambethenna buses go till Dambethenna tea factory. You can get a tuk-tuk from Dambethenna tea factory or walk though tea estate (It is about 6 km but there are short cuts) to reach the place. You can get view of five province from Lipton's seat. There is a separate observation desk built at more higher place. Better visit there at morning hours as it takes only few minutes to cover the view with mist. It is worth to visit at Dambethenna tea factory as well.

A must see attraction if you're in the area. The Victorian tea making factory is still working and is a great example of colonial investment (whether you agree or not with the historical context). It's in a working plantation and there are fabulous views of the surrounding area from its mountain-top location.
