From Ella: Lipton Seat & Dambatenne Tea Factory Day Tour

1. From Ella: Lipton Seat & Dambatenne Tea Factory Day Tour

Explore the Dambatenne countryside, head past green fields and tea plantations for the chance to see traditional life in the area. Start your tour as you head to Dambatenne Tea Factory, built in 1890 by Sir Thomas Lipton, one of the most famous figures in tea history. Take a tour through the works for an education on the processes involved in the fermentation, rolling, drying, cutting, sieving and grading of tea. Enjoy one of the most comprehensive tea factory tours around, and afterwards, take the chance to try a cup. Move on to Lipton’s Seat Lookout, one of Sri Lanka's most impressive viewpoints. Here, Sir Thomas Lipton used to survey his burgeoning empire, and today it's said you can see across emerald hills and tea estates to no fewer than seven different provinces. Finally, return to your hotel in Ella.

Nice round

Nice tour through villages in Sri Lanka, up through the mountains to finally get to Lipton Tea Seat. The views are fantastic, there was good food and of course tea. With the guide you really got to see the highlands of Sri Lanka. A must!
