Hill Country and Tea Plantations

We drove to Nuwara Eliya to see the waterfalls and the tea plantations.  Nuwara Eliya means "City of Light" and was the favourite hill station of the British.

Coffee used to be grown in Sri Lanka, but the plantations were destroyed by a disease and the people turned to growing tea instead.  The hill country is perfect for tea:  warm, high and sloping.
