This photo was meant to be a failure  but I manage to keep my dress down and a smile on my face. πŸ™ˆ During our #vantrip back to Portugal, a guy broke into our van stealing one of our backpacks with computers, passports and credit cards 😐 Obviously scared and devastated and after a police report, we continue our trip (a bit faster) grateful that nobody was hurt. In the end what happens is not as important as how you react to what happens πŸ€”

Weekend Getaway: things to do in Nuwara Eliya

on
March 26, 2019

Nuwara Eliya, known as Little England of Sri Lanka, it is the most important area for tea production due to its cooler climate. Not only the climate but also the surroundings and architecture of this area are different than other villages on the island. Although it’s the highlight, exploring tea plantations is not the only thing to do in Nuwara Eliya so, here are our top things to do in Nuwara Eliya.

Stroll around Victoria Park

Victoria Park is a beautifully maintained garden in the heart of the city, home to quite a number of hill-country bird species. The entrance fee is 300 Sri Lankan Rupees and at the far end of the park is a small children’s playground and miniature train. This park is the place to relax and enjoy the natural sights and clean mountain air.

Chill around Gregory Lake

Gregory Lake is a reservoir in heart of the Nuwara Eliya, that has been converted into a sort of Lake Park with many recreational activities. There you can find people with boats, jet skis and bicycles for rent and you can also do horse riding. Take some time to relax around the lakeand have a delicious meal in one of the restaurants around.

Explore the tea plantations and visit a tea factory in Sri Lanka

The impressive lush green tea plantations are best to visit by tuk-tuk and for 1250 Sri Lankan rupees (around $7) you can arrange a full day trip that includes tea plantations, tea factories, viewpoints and the Ramboda waterfall. It’s really nice to see how the tea process works and you also get a small tour around the factory where you can buy some of the products at the factory’s shop. The prices at the factory’s shop are ridiculously expensive so we highly recommend you to buy wait and buy these exactly the same products in town. Stop at several viewpoints overlooking the plantations, drink tea at the impressive tea factories and take some photos of the surroundings but make sure you have small cash on you (like 20/50 Sri Lankan Rupees): every employee that get caught on your photo will ask you for a tip.

Explore the Ramboda Falls in Nuwara Eliya

Ramboda Falls is located at the end of the tea plantations route, and it takes 45 minutes walking to reach it. These waterfalls are composed of multiple levels, so simply get into the water and climb! As part of the tour or not, this is a really nice experience to have in Nuwara Eliya, just careful, some parts are slippery. 

Morning hike to the Single Tree Hill

Located just 3 km away from the city centre, Single Tree Hill is a beautiful viewpoint that shouldn’t be ignored. Get up really early in the morning and be prepared for a 45-minutes walk. We highly recommend you to contineu the hiking until the top of the mountain. The views up there are amazing but keep an eye on the weather conditions, rain or fog can totally ruin the experience.

When to visit Nuwara Eliya?

Nuwara Eliya has its own climate so keep in mind that it can get very cold in Nuwara Eliya compared to other areas in Sri Lanka. The worst time to visit is from June till the end of August since it will be the monsoons.  In February, we had 16 degrees in the evening a huge difference compared to other areas of the island (25ΒΊC).

How to get in Nuwara Eliya?

Have you ever heard about world-famousΒ Sri Lanka’s most beautiful train ride? The ride takes 4 hours goes from Kandy to Ella and Nuwara Eliya happens to be located right in between of those two cities.Β  A ticket from Kandy will cost you 400 Sri Lankan Rupees (around $2,50) and has been mentioned as one of the most beautiful train routes in the world. Expect friendly smiles or questions during the rip since this train is also used by locals and tourists. Β If you’re visiting Sri Lanka in high season try to buy your tickets in advance since there are limited tourist seats available. These trains don’t really stick to their schedule so try to get one of the early trains if you don’t want to drive through tea plantation while it’s dark outside.

Where to eat in Nuwara Eliya?

Breakfast, afternoon tea or a complete meal these are our favorite spots in town:

  • Gregory Green Restaurant
  • Ayurveda Coffee Shop
  • Coffee Bar Grand Hotel
