Nuwara Eliya

Nuwara Eliya is a resort located at an altitude of 1884 meters. It was created by the British in colonial times. They used to come here in April, when it was too hot in Colombo. Here are villas, beautiful parks, lake, golf course, and racetrack. It's really much colder here than near the ocean. We stayed in an old colonial hotel and were not able to stay in a room without a heater. From December to April, daytime temperatures are up to +21 and +10 at night. From September to December, the daytime temperature is not above +15. During the rest time of the year the average temperature is about +15-18.

In the downtown are beautiful colonial houses and an old post office, from which we sent a postcard home. However, we didn't receive it :)

Near the town is the highest peak of the country, Pidurutalagala (2524 m), but it is closed for climbing, as a TV tower stands there. Nuwara Eliya can be a starting point to visit the beautiful waterfalls in the area, the botanical garden Hakgala and the Horton plateau.
