    Tea plantations

    by akikonomu Written Oct 10, 2003

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    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.

    Hakgala Gardens

    The entrance fees are a little steep at Rs300 but definitely worth it if you're into landscaped gardens.

    Be wowed by the array of colourful flowers and garden.

    There's public bus there but we went there in a chartered van amongst 2 other places. Because of the afternoon rain, we had to leave around 230pm, so maybe it's better to go in the morning if you're visiting in late September.

    tea factory

    You should visit one of the tea factories on your way up the hills. All over the landscape you will see several. But Lasalle right at the egde of the road caters for tourists with a tea shop. There is black tea only!

    As you travel about the Hill Country through narrow valleys hemmed in by high mountains you'll see many waterfalls. They look pretty spectacular as they just appear out of the lush green vegetation.

    Nuwara Eliya

    Nuwara Eliya still has a very British feel, as can be seen in the appearance of many of the buildings, in various colonial styles.
