    Morning
    Morning after Breakfast head ‘up country’ and the city of Nuwara Eliya via Kithulgala. If you feel adventurous, the incredible experience of White Water Rafting awaits you at Kitulgala. The 5km on the picturesque Kelani River run covers 5 major rapids and 4 minor ones. You will be in good hands with safety gear, modern rafts, and a comprehensive safety briefing given by our white water rafting instructors beforehand. Those who prefer to keep their feet dry can take it easy, relax and admire the beautiful views.

    Afternoon
    The old colonial outpost still referred to as ‘Little England’ Nuwara Eliya certainly lives up to its name. Perched 6200 feet above sea level, the climate too, adds to the illusion of one stepping into an old English town, where neat hedges, quaint cottages and beautiful old buildings stand as serene as they did well over a century ago – the magnificent Grand Hotel presiding over them all. There is, of course, an old golf course as well as horse racing events to complete the picture.

At a level of over 7000 ft above sea level, Horton Plains is the highest plateau in the country and its unique landscape and wilderness draws visitors from near and far. The vast Patna rises from the marshland on the lower slopes and spreads up to the tree line – trees which are stunted by the winds, covered in ‘Spagnum moss ‘ or old man’s beard. The swirling mist envelops it all. In the lush jungle rare and endemic trees and plants flourish – the ‘Niloo’ flowers bloom once in 12 years. Sambur, leopard and other mammals as well as many species of birds and butterflies are also found here.

Tour Reviews

  • Frances | UK

    We booked a tour with Tangerine Tours from the UK, we contacted them directly via email. I would not hesitate in recommending them to anyone who wants a little bit of autonomy in their tour selection. They created a tailor made tour for us, selecting excellent hotels, and all for a great price. The driver/guide was more of a driver than a guide, but that suited us, as we were happy to do our own thing once we got to the various attractions we had selected. We dealt with Leon in their Colombo office, who was efficient, polite and really on the ball.
