Nuwara Eliya, also known as Sri Lanka’s “Little England”, is the prime hill resort of the country. At a height of approximately 2000m above sea level, the city has an abundance of lush tea plantations and jaw dropping scenery. Its nickname comes from the many English style bungalows and buildings still in existence today. During the colonial times, it was a popular mountain resort and has retained its popularity as a holiday destination even today. For those who are frustrated with the humid heat of Colombo, Nuwara Eliya is a good escape location for a relaxing break. The hill station is popular for its fresh, cool and breezy climate throughout the year. Furthermore, the city holds several activities for tourists such as golf, tea plantations, horse riding, trekking and exploring the beautiful waterfalls. A day tour of Little England will give you a chance to cover many of these activities as well as indulge in the beauty of the hill resort.
