Private Day Tour in Nuwara Eliya
Nuwara Eliya, also known as Sri Lanka’s “Little England”, is the country’s highest city. At an altitude of approx. 2000 m above sea level, the city offers an abundance of lush tea plantations and breathtaking landscapes. Its fertility is typical of the region, where fruits and vegetables grow that are otherwise only found in temperate latitudes. Its nickname comes from the many English-style bungalows and buildings that still exist from the 19th century and are well preserved. During the colonial period, it was a popular mountain resort and has retained its popularity as a holiday destination to this day.
Nuwara Eliya is a good place for anyone looking for a cool change from the tropical beaches. The climate is fresh, cool and airy all year round. In addition, the city offers numerous activities for tourists such as visiting a tea plantation, guided tour of a tea factory, trekking, golf, horse riding and exploring the beautiful waterfalls. A day tour to “Little England” offers you the opportunity to experience a variety of these activities and to enjoy the beauty of the highlands.
