Sri Lanka Hill country Tour
Hill country in Sri Lanka is situated in the central part of the country which is 6000 feet above sea level and it is exceptionally beautiful with crystal clear waterfalls and the hilly slopes carpeted by tea plantations. The temperature in this region stays cool and mild throughout the year unlike in the low country. It is a welcoming contrast to the heat in Colombo and other coastal areas. The central highlands was inscribed as a UNESCO WORLD HERITAGE SITE in 2010 and the site comprises the Peak Wilderness Protected Area, the Horton Plains National Park and the Knuckles Conservation Forest.
The main scenic cities in the hills are Kandy, Nuwara Eliya, Bandarawela, Badulla, Dickoya, Haputale and Ella. The charming hill country towns and villages are places where life is peaceful and unhurried. Those who have travelled this uphill journey by train will confirm that it is one of the most enchanting train journeys in the world.
