Tea plantations and waterfalls of Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka is country with so many beauties you should place it on your travel wish-list. Sri Lanka doesn´t have only beautiful beaches, elephants, national parks and historical sights, listed as UNESCO World Heritage Site. Its landscape is as diverse as can be adventures that it is offering to travelers. Not to mention tasteful food and kind people. In its center, where the heart of Sri Lanka lies, there are green tea plantations and a lot of waterfalls, which make experience even more beautiful. Walk between tea plantations is interesting adventure, even if it is seasoned with interesting and not so likeable animals – leeches. Because they are not dangerous, just annoying, they stay as interesting traveler´s memory J

Nuwara Eliya is in the heart of green inland of Sri Lanka and here they grow tea of best quality in the world. It lies high, on almost 2.000 meters above sea level and is good starting point for trekking, exploring waterfalls or train ride between plantations. You shouldn´t leave out visiting tea factory and tea tasting, because the quality of that healing tea is much higher than in those we can by in Europe or elsewhere as green or black tea from Sri Lanka.

Waterfalls that we explored and visited on our trip to green inland of Sri Lanka are: Ramboda Falls, Devon Falls, St. Clair Falls, Ravana Ella Falls… Among them I would definitely expose Ramboda Falls, but you have to hire a guide that knows surroundings around Nuwara Eliya and that leads you to the starting point. So you should find a guide in this high attitude town, which climate resembles ours and allows you to cool down of tropical heat of Sri Lanka.
