Day 5 and Day 6 - Nuwara Eliya

Take the scenic train journey from Kandy to Nuwara Eliya along the British built railway line to transport their Tea harvest to Colombo port. This is a nostalgic locomotive ride through the tea estates, forest patches and sleepy villages. When in Kandy you could do a nature trail in Horton Plains NP to witness a very important eco system. Baker's waterfall and World's end point are the centre point of this nature trail. You would also be able to see high elevation birds and Samber Deers in abundance.

Visit a Tea estate and factory is also another interesting experience and a must do thing when in Sri Lanka, home of world's finest Teas. At the Tea estate, pluck your own teas just like the local estate workers does and get the first hand experience of Tea plucking.

Also do not forget to explore the British era colonial buildings such as The Grand Hotel, Hill Club, St. Andrew's Hotel, Nuwara Eliya Post Office before hitting a dodgy bar for a chilled beer in the town. You will be staying in a small independent hotel near Nuwara Eliya town for two nights.
