Trip Planner : Asia / Sri Lanka / Central Province / Nuwara Eliya
Sitting high up in the hills, the green and pleasant Nuwara Eliya offers both a rich history and proximity to pristine natural areas. Founded by a British explorer in the 19th century, the fledgling tea plantation town became popular with British growers and administrators thanks to its temperate climate. Well preserved and atmospheric, old colonial buildings and plantations provide a charming backdrop for tours of Nuwara Eliya. Most domestic tourists arrive during April to celebrate the Sinhalese and Tamil New Year. During that time, the ambience in town completely changes as crowds pack in and party in the old colonial hotels and in the main square. When using our Sri Lanka trip itinerary builder app to make an itinerary online, Nuwara Eliya holidays come together around your tastes, interests, and requirements, with us taking care of the logistics.
