Lush Ceylon Tea Gardens

Ceylon – a former British crown colony, producing the finest teas in the world is today known as the Republic of Sri Lanka. Spread across the cool mountains in the central parts of the Island are acres and acres of lush green tea cultivation with factories boasting of glorious heritage. Cane baskets overflowing with freshly picked green tea leaves, carried on the backs of tea plucking women attired in multi coloured hues is a sight that portrays inexpressible beauty. The journey to the hill country has been made even more interesting with elephant orphanages, world renowned spice gardens, picturesque train tracks and winding roads adding to the aura of mystery and romance.

Luxurious or boutique hotels, colonial bungalows or budget-stays can be arranged in these cool climes with visits to tea factories, adventures in the cool waters of the mountains, witnessing ancient kingdoms and world heritage sites including blessed trips to the renowned Dalada Maligawa can be organised. Allow us to create the finest of afternoons for you with a sip of the freshest cup of tea in the world, right on a mountain top where it was plucked.
