Nuwara Eliya
The town sits at 1, 980 meters (6, 496 ft) a.s.l. under the shadow of the Knuckles Mountain Range. This is where the first of the many hill stations were built by the English tea planters. A walk around the town centre reveals traces of the Englishmen 'footsteps'. In fact, just about anything and everything 'English' can be found …

Nuwara Eliya isn't exactly tropical! In fact arriving on a public bus,after more than 5 hours being cramped on uncomfortable seats and being thrown around as the driver navigates hair pin bends and tuk tuks in the road, it's a complete come down from the West coast.

The weather is rainy and sadly a little miserable, much like I imagine the …

Sri Lanka - Nuwara Eliya

... plantations we had to find a place to sleep. As always, we did not book anything in advance which meant that we had to walk a few blocks and enter several hotels. Within 20 minutes we found a solid place close to the bus station/city center and we managed to negotiate a little bit so they gave us one of their best rooms for RS 2,000. Well, later it turned not to be such a great deal. The hotel was located next to a very noisy bar, and apparently local guys were taking ...

... see for miles - all sorts of native Sri Lankan and non native mixed trees, rivers, waterfalls etc - it was just gorgeous. We took a number of stops to wander to a waterfall and take plenty of pictures. At the top, we reached the tea plantation where we had a guided tour of how tea is harvested, dried, crushed and packaged, followed by some fresh tea and cakes. We had considered not going on this tour but we ...

Of all the hikes we’ve done in this area, this hike proved to be the one hike which was done in picture perfect weather. The sun was out in all its glory. The skies were absolutely clear and there was not a hint of mist or wind. It was like doing a hike in Colombo with the only difference being the drop in temperature. The trail is clearly marked and directed. It starts from behind the Horton Plains Visitor’s Centre. We started the

    We stayed in 2 rooms. The room upstairs was dark & dusty. The one downstairs slightly brighter, but noisy hotel staff disturbed our sleep at night. Food on the other hand was quite good. I had the tastiest freshly-made garlic soup here. The cook who was also the waiter was generous in his servings. The owner on the other hand was a bit of a stiff neck. For USD60 per night, it's not worth staying here.
