Nuwara Eliya

Dubbed the ‘Little England of Sri Lanka’, Nuwara Eliya is located in the thick, misty hills of this paradise isle, 180km (112 miles) away from Colombo.

The summer resort of Sri Lanka is one of the few areas where the colonial atmosphere is preserved and still resembling a British countryside complete with rose gardens, hedges and red-roofed bungalows. Although the town-centre has receded from its old-world charm, the lush tea-plantations, the racecourse, the English country house–styled Hill Club and the beautifully kept golf course instantaneously rush its visitors back to the colonial times.

Touring locations include: the lovely Queen Victoria Park and the Gregory Lake, the legendary Hakgala botanical garden, Galway Land bird sanctuary, the misty landscapes of Horton Plains as well as tea factories where one can obtain an up-close perspective on how your cup of tea originates. The area is also ideal for hiking. The month of April marks the Nuwara Eliya ‘season’.
