Sri Lanka

DESTINATIONS > HOME > Sri Lanka > Tea Plantations and The Hill Country

The abundant rainfall combined with Sri Lanka’s year round sunshine offer the perfect climate for producing world famous tea.

No trip to Sri Lanka would be complete without a visit to any number of the historic tea plantations that are distributed throughout the island, however some of the most dramatic are located around Kandy and central Sri Lanka. If you are considering some time here, the train journey from Kandy to Hatton through the Hill Country cannot be missed! This journey is without doubt one of the most picturesque rail journeys in the world.

Judy & Chris

We had an amazing holiday in Sri Lanka. All the hotels, transfers, trips and experiences arranged by True Travel were perfect and all the arrangements went seamlessly according to plan. Our guide and driver, Thusita, was a really nice man and so knowledgeable, going out of his way to make sure that we experienced many of the Sri Lankan foods and traditions as possible. I would recommend True Travel to anyone especially if you have not visited the country before.
