Discover Sri Lanka at its most scenic: mist-shrouded uploads dotted with old colonial settlements and the colourful figures of tea-pluckers toiling on the plantations
The hill country is a world away from the rest of Sri Lanka. While the parched lowlands simmer and sweat beneath an eternal tropical summer, the uplands bask in a perpetual European Spring that turns to a crisp autumnal chill at a higher elevation. Tangled green mountains rise from every quarter. Their lower slopes are swathed in millions of green tea bushes. Spectacular waterfalls plunge over sheer cliffs into narrow valleys hemmed in between high mountainsides.
