Nuwara Eliya

  • 56

Only a few hours from Colombo, Nuwara Eliya sits in the hill country in eternal temperate winter and is charmingly called “Little England”, due to it being where British settlers built their holiday bungalows and spent their downtime. Its name means "city on the plain (table land)" .  With a picturesque landscape and temperate climate, it is at an altitude of 1,868 m (6,128 ft) and is considered to be the most important location for tea production in Sri Lanka.
