Misty Mountains and Cascading Waterfalls

The upcountry in Sri Lanka is considered beautiful and breathtaking with its mist covered mountain peaks standing tall and gracious while the milky frothy waterfalls enliven the environment with its beauty and the glorious sound of the cascading waters.

The most popular part of the upcountry are Kandy and Nuwara Eliya. Kandy is considered a cultural city with a rich royal and religious history. Nuwara Eliya is popular for its cool climate and mountains.

A holiday in the upcountry will certainly be an unforgettable one with the spectacular hotels, resorts, inns, Golf Courses and the luxurious boutique villas.

The misty mountains are a perfect back drop with the beauty of the green carpet like tea gardens, a breathtaking view to wake up to.

Discover the forests amidst the mountains, take a walk through the tea garden trails and inhale the aroma of fresh tea bushes. The cool climes and chilly breeze will brush up against your skin giving you a light feel of winter. The nights are chilly and perfect for a glass of a premium spirit and hearty meal followed by a warm dessert and a cup of Ceylon tea.

If you wish, request the hotel you choose to stay for an outdoor high tea experience where afternoon tea is a stylish affair with English scones, clotted cream, fresh strawberry jam and cucumber sandwiches will be accompanied by Ceylon’s finest tea freshly brewed just for you.

Nuwara Eliya is referred to as ‘Little England’ for a reason, the mesmeric mornings with the mist, chirping of the birds, fresh chilly air and the sweet smell of fresh flowers makes it impossible to believe that you’re in the tropics.

A mid-morning picnic overlooking the Gregory lake is an ideal way to spend with your loved one. Take a freshly packed basket and enjoy it over the green grass overlooking the beautiful lake.

Walk up to a strawberry farm and taste fresh strawberries covered with whipped fresh cream.

There’s so much to discover and experience in the beautiful hill country of Sri Lanka.
