NUWARA ELIYA

Mist-clad mountains and sleepy hilltop villages with cascading waterfalls amongst
the vast tea plantations for which Sri Lanka is renowned for, lies Nuwara Eliya.
Overlooked by Pidurutalagala – Sri Lanka’s tallest mountain range; Nuwara Eliya
signifies as the “City on the Plain” or “City of Light” in local dialect.

/ TEA PLANTATIONS /

1867, James Taylor marked the birth of the tea industry in Ceylon by starting a tea
plantation in Kandy. It was not long after that Nuwara Eliya’s climate lent itself to
becoming the prime location for tea production but also the sanctuary of the British
civil servants and planters in Ceylon.
