Tea Estates of Ginigathhena, Sri Lanka

Nuwara Eliya is the first and most popular name when people think of the tea estates of Sri Lanka. The tea from the estates of Nuwara Eliya might be the best in the country, but the tea estates and tropical forests of Ginigathhena are possibly the most beautiful.

In fact, the landscape is so vividly green that you would want to spend the rest of eternity here if you are a nature lover and/or a landscape photographer. Winding roads weave their way about the tea gardens. Waterfalls can be seen at nearly every turn. The green forests seem to grow as dense as they can and as tall too.

And in terms of the people, the Sri Lankans are possibly one of the most hospitable. Even the culture in the central highlands is unique with a mix of Buddhism, Hinduism, Christianity and Islam. Even Tamil, the South Indian language is quite popular here. In fact, it is the 2nd most popular language in Ginigathhena.
