CENTRAL HILLS OF SRI LANKA

CENTRAL HILLS OF SRI LANKA

Sri Lanka’s Central Highlands of rushing waterfalls, plunging ravines and tea estates clinging precariously to steep hillsides is one of the most beautiful mountainous areas of the world.

The landscape along the way is a beguiling mixture of nature & nurture. In places, the mountainous green hills rise to surprisingly rugged & dramatic peaks, whose craggy grandeur belies the island’s modest dimensions; in others, the slopes are covered in carefully manicured tea gardens whose neatly trimmed lines of bushes add a quality unlike any other plantations or vegetation, while the mist & clouds which frequently blanket the hill add a further layer of mystery.
