Nuwara-Eliya is the 'heart' of the tea country located at an elevation of 1980 meters in the central highlands. It offers both tropical abundance and pleasant cool mountain climate. While the time climate is sub-tropical, night temperature plunge low enough to produce frost. It is where the British succeeded in creating a replica of the English countryside, with homes in styles from Georgian to Queen Anne. Well-kept lawns with hedges, an Anglican church, a famous golf course and beautiful parks, give the place an air of nostalgia. Nuwara-Eliya offers many activities including visits to tea plantations, golfing, and horse riding, boating, hiking and of course exploring the beauty of the landscaped gardens, waterfalls.
