A welcome escape from the sweltering coastline, Sri Lanka’s breathtaking
hill country provides a refreshing respite beyond the beach. An idyll of lush
mountainous terrain blanketed in green, the densely forested landscape sparkles
emerald amidst misty peaks evoking a sense of picturesque drama accentuated
by cascading waterfalls and jagged plateaus. The scenic beauty of this region is
enhanced further by expanses of tea plantations adorned with the bustling hue
of sari clad tea pluckers. So whether exploring the cultural wealth of the last
Sinhalese stronghold of Kandy or following the butterfly trail to a perfect sunrise
at Adam’s Peak, basking in the heart-stopping beauty of one of Sri Lanka’s most
famous views at World’s End or simply enjoying the aroma of a freshly brewed
cup of Ceylon tea on the verandah of a charming bungalow in Nuwara Eliya, while
delighting in a scenic view; the hill country never disappoints.
Join Jetwing in an expedition to the Hill Country with panoramic mountain vistas of
rolling green hills carpeted with tea. We will arrange visits to tea factories to see
how the local blend is produced, morning walking the tea experiences to speak
with the local tea pluckers and see what a typical work day is like for them, to
exquisite tea tasting experiences and museum visits and expert guides to impart
to you the history of Ceylon tea, how it was introduced to Ceylon by the early
pioneers during colonial times etc.
