Full description

Travel from Bandarawela to Kalupahana on this hike through lush teal plantations and forests. Walk by remote villages, tea estates, and the tallest waterfall in Sir Lanka on this three day trip.

Be picked up from the comfort of your hotel and travel to Bandarawela for three-days of hiking in the forests and countryside. Rest in the evenings in a lodge where you will have dinner and breakfast.

Enjoy picnic lunches while you hike. Stroll through a eucalyptus forest, taste locally grown tea, try picking tea for yourself, and meet local people. Immerse yourself in the local culture and the serenity of the natural surroundings.

Head to high tea country to walk the tea trail for five hours. View panoramas of the tea plantations. Join the local women who pick tea leaves for half an hour. Go to the house of one of the women you picked tea with for a cup of tea. Have a fresh lunch at the tea plantation.

Day 2:

Journey through a pine, eucalyptus, and rain forest. Take in panoramic views of the tea plantation. Visit a remote tea estate where those who work on the plantation live. Meet the family and children of the workers. Pass through a railway tunnel and eat a delicious picnic where there are panoramic views. Day 3: After breakfast in the lodge, start hiking to the tallest waterfall in Sir Lanka, Babarakanda falls. Admire panoramic vies of tea plantations, mountains, and villages.
