Heart of Sri Lanka’s tea country, Nuwara Eliya teas are some of the country’s   best.

Many of Sri Lanka high mountain peaks including the highest Pidurutalagala   (2524 m) are located in this district. Excellent walks and drives, exceptionally   good golf on the 18 hole course, one of the best in Asia. Trout hatchery,   market, gardens of flowers, fruits and vegetables, not commonly associated with   Sri Lanka, Haggala Botanical Gardens famous for its collection of roses and the   rare fernery.
