Founded by Samuel Baker, it's called Little England of Sri Lanka and sits high atop the inner highlands blanketed with cool air and misty clouds. Named "city on the Plain" overlooking the tallest mountain in Sri Lanka being Piduruthalagala.. This beauteous town is a continuing memory of Sri Lanka's British past, as the houses of Nuwara Eliya hold the architectural design elements and look of an English countryside. 1890 meters above sea level, this town is ideal for tea cultivation, which is the usual sight when making your way to the top. Even a great shopping adventure at the Nuwara Eliya town and market place, or a few swings on the evergreen Golf Course, being one of the finest 18 holes golf courses in Asia, could be just what you needed. Take the winding scenic route to this mountain top town filled with culture and history for a memorable time.
