In an around Haputale

There are numerous hiking trails in and around ‘Clouds’, across mountain terrain, beautiful tea plantations, through dense forests and by streams and waterfalls.Horton Plains National Park which is declared as a UNESCO World Heritage Site is a must for nature lovers to visit the peak wilderness, Bakers Falls and Worlds End.

Lipton’s Seat has some interesting history behind it – it is from where the Scottish tea baron Sir Thomas Lipton used to survey his tea estates; ‘Adisham’ a catholic monastery housed in an old English Manor type building built by English aristocrat and planter Sir Thomas Villiers is equally fascinating. And you will enjoy a drive around to see the Country’s most scenic waterfalls (Diyaluma, Bambrakanda, and Ravana Ella) which are all located close to Haputale.
