Nuwara Eliya is a beautiful mountain station 1868m above sea level. The city is well-kept and neat, and with its British like red-brick walls, mock-Tudor half-timbering and a country club, complete with hunting pictures and mounted trophies, it is sometimes referred to as “Little England”.

The surrounding areas offer breath-taking views of valleys, meadows, mountains and greenery and most importantly a wonderful break from the heat and humidity of the coast. Tea Estates, waterfalls, and mountains complete the picture.
