Full description

After we pick you up at your hotel (please bring a packed breakfast if you couldn’t have breakfast at your hotel), we will take you into the chilly highlands of Sri Lanka, with its spectacular mountain top views and majestic waterfalls. We'll proceed to Nuwara Eliya, with a stop at Ramboda Falls.


Then, we will discover the tea estates and factories in the area. Sri Lanka’s amazing tea is world famous for a reason – and the country's tea comes from its highlands. The humidity, climate and cool atmosphere all play a part in giving Ceylon Tea its unique taste.


Tea isn't the only thing grown in these areas, with the unique climate allowing beautiful flora to blossom here as well.


During the tour, you will have a one hour break for lunch at a place of your choice (at your own cost).


You will also visit the serene Lake Gregory, with its calming water and stunning views. Lake Gregory is one of the most significant tourist attractions in Nuwara Eliya. You can enjoy some activities in the evening such as taking a long walk or even relaxing near the cool waters of the lakeside. We will head back to Kandy at approximately 1900 hrs.
