Day tour of Nuwara Eliya


Nuwara Eliya is the most visited town in the hill area, and the British who conquered Sri Lanka fell in love with the scenery, naming it “Little England.” This is the ideal place for both locals and tourists looking to escape the heat and bustle of Colombo. It is studded with colonial buildings and scenic beauty. It is straightforward to book a day excursion to Nuwara Eliya from Colombo or the South Coast. It is strongly encouraged that we depart for the highlands at 5.30 a.m. from Colombo or 5 a.m. from the South Coast.
