Travel Tips for Nuwara Eliya

Hill Country Memories

by freya_heaven

One of the most moving things about Nuwara Eliya is that I was following in my Grandfathers footsteps. He had been here & taken this photo in 1943 or 1944.

He came to Nuwara Eliya for a weeks holiday with a friend during army leave in WW2, from Trincomalee in the north east of Sri Lanka where he was based.

Little England's charm... or not?

by call_me_rhia

Nuwara Eliya, which means the City of Lights, is also known as 'Little' England', supposedly because of the many turn-of-the-century English-style buildings. To be fair the city is really grey concrete heaven, and the only English buildings were the Grand Hotel and the old brick Post Office. This pink-ish building, in my opinion, is the only one worth taking a look at in town.

Tea plantations

by akikonomu

There're many tea plantations around Nuwara Eliya, and we chose Pedro Tea Estate because we wanted to visit Lover's Leap along the way.

You'll get introduced to the procedure of making tea and finally get to taste a cup of tea. Walk around the plantation and maybe witness the tea pluckers.

The best part of the visit must be the strong scent of tea that hits you (really strong) when you enter the processing room.

Be warned that the sun may be searing if you intend to walk around the plantation so go well equipped.

Rubber Plantation

by freya_heaven

We stopped next to a rubber plantation, a chap who worked there gave is a quick demonstration on how latex is taken from the trees. As you can see the bark is cut in a sloping direction so the rubber can run out. Then it is then collected in coconut shells.

Nuwara Eliya

"Nuwara Eliya"

We stopped briefly in the town of Nuwara Eliya to use the bank and buy some supplies from the supermarket on our way to the Mackwoods Tea factory. We also saw many tea pluckers at work on the hillsides, which was something I'd always wanted to see. The tea country is fascinating as you take the winding roads up to the plantations and see all the bushes where your daily cuppa comes from! Not to be missed for any tea drinker and non tea drinker alike!
