Walking in Nuwara Eliya : Sri Lanka (Dec’18) - Day 4 & 5 1

This is the perfect shot I got at Rambodha Water Fall near Nuwara Eliya. If you are planning to visit here then spend at least half day. You will be experiencing hiking to Water Fall as well as good views. There is entrance ticket as well.

Nuwara Eliya

is a city in the tea country hills of central Sri Lanka. The naturally landscaped Hakgala Botanical Gardens displays roses and tree ferns, and shelters monkeys and blue magpies. Nearby Seetha Amman Temple, a colorful Hindu shrine, is decorated with religious figures.

Ramboda Waterfall

Rivers, as they flow over uneven ground or down mountains, often split into tributaries or form waterfalls. Sometimes two tributaries of the same river may form twin waterfalls very close to each other as the water spills down cliffs and rocks. But you should plan for day

Storefield Tea Factory

We were taken here by our driver. They then brought out a selection of teas for us to try. After which we were directed to the shop and encouraged to buy their over priced tea. Avoid at all cost.

Shri Bhakta Hanuman Temple

Shri Bhakta Hanuman Temple is built by Chinmaya Mission of Sri Lanka. Located in Ramboda on Kandy-Nuwara Eliya Road located approximately 30 odd kilometers North of Nuwara Eliya on A-5 route facing the Kotmale Reservoir.

Road Trip Sightseeing

The way to Nuwara Eliya, we captured some shots with locals and sights.

Sri Lanka Food & Sweets

We found one shop corner of road and tried everything we could.

Seetha Amman Temple

The Sita Amman Temple dedicated to Sita, the wife of Lord Rama, situated in the hills of Nuwara Eliya, is treated with enduring devotion by Hindus as it is considered to be the only such temple in the world. It is located five kilometres along the road from Nuwara Eliya to Kandy. History has it that this is the place where King Ravana held Sits imprisoned.

Dinner Time

The weather was so cold in the evening. We found nice Sri Lankan restaurant for dinner. The right place for tourists.

Spent Night at Seasons Villa, Nuwara Eliya

Seasons Villa Nuwara Eliya nest in a Charming and quite surrounding with a plenty of Vegetation around it. Our Villa located in Nuwara Eliya city limit, just 10 minutes walking distance to famous lake Gregory and Nuwara Eliya race course. Victoria park and Royal Golf Club is just 1.5 km away from the Villa.

Gregory Lake, Nuwara Eliya

Gregory Lake was build under the period of British Governor Sir William Gregory in 1873. This is the most prominent attraction in Nuwara Eliya and all the vistors used to come here and spent some time by the lake and relax. This was used as a place for water sports and for re-recreational activities during the British time. Graory lake gets crowded during the April tourist season. You can walk around the lake.

Shanthipura View Point

Shanthipura View Point is located in Nuwara Eliya. It’s better to go on a clear day. The mist reduces visibility. But still blocking some views. It is not very clear.
