SRI LANKA – part 2 , Hill Country, Nurelia

Our next stop was central Sri Lanka and the misty hills of ‘Nurelia’ or Nuwara Eliya. We ended up staying at a terrible hotel, but spent a fabulous day at theTea Factory.

When this tea factory was built on the Hethersett Plantation it was regarded, as a remarkable work of engineering. It was eventually closed down in 1973 and beautifully restored and transformed into a hotel in 1992 by the talented architect Nihal Bodhinayake. Stay here for sure, but be sure to book well in advance!

Nurelia is truly beautiful, a sea of green with endless tea plantations,fresh air and blue skies.
