Nuwara Eliya is Sri Lanka’s centre of tea production. Situated at an elevation of 1889 metres above sea level, you will find many colonial inspired homes dotted throughout this highland community. The hills are blanketed by dense green tea plantations and the area has become a popular stop between Ella and Kandy to break up the famous hill train journey. Having a cooler climate, the entire region is a refreshing change and well worth a visit.
