Nuwara Eliya and Ella, Central Highlands, Sri Lanka

From the ancient cities we gained altitude, heading into the Central Highlands. This topography is an ideal place for growing Tea, something the British discovered in the 19th Century. We stayed in Nuwara Eliya and then Ella – both beautiful relaxed destinations which we could have happily stayed much longer at.
