Lush Green Hills of Bandarawela


Sri lanka is famous for tea and the hill country is full of tea estates since colonial era. Lush green tea estates covering a mountain range is a glamorous sight.

Most of the hiking routes of the hill country go through these tea estates. The hike from Horton to Belihul Oya over the world's end and one from Ohiya to Bambarakanda falls are some examples. Most hikers will find shorter paths to their destination by cutting across a huge tea estate.
