  • Pinnawela – Nuwara Eliya

    Day 1: The Elephant Orphanage at Pinnawela is our first destination. This institution was established in 1975, to give injured or orphaned elephants a chance of survival. The visit here will be unforgettable!

    Then it’s on to Nuwara Eliya in the highlands.
    Along the way you visit a tea factory, where you have opportunity to buy very good highland quality tea and enjoy a cup of tea with a very tasty piece of chocolate cake.
    The tea plantations are located in the altitude range from about 1000 to 2500 m and produce some of the best tea’s in the world. The path through the plantations goes over small, very curvy roads, over mountain passes, passing waterfalls and stunning scenery. An overwhelming experience for every nature lover! Something special: If you wish, you can take part of their journey by train! The driver will arrange locally for the tickets (not included, cost only a few €), brings you to the train and waiting at the agreed location. So you can experience how the locals travel and you have guaranteed views of the landscape that will impress you very much!

    (Information: At the highlands it can get a bit cool in the evening. A Jacket or a pullover is required.)

    Overnight stay in Nuwara Eliya

    Day 2: Before traveling back you will have a small city tour. Discover the many buildings from the British colonial time, as example the post office of Nuwara Eliya, take a walk through the market and enjoy the hustle of this small town. Passing tea plantations and waterfalls we drive back to your hotel.
