The salubrious hill country offers you breathtaking scenery, each turn unfolding a different visual tapestry. It consists of mist-shrouded mountains covered in forests of wind-stunted trees, plains known as patanas, and rolling tea plantations. In addition, the hillsides are invariably punctuated by dramatic waterfalls. For its size Sri Lanka has perhaps the largest number of waterfalls of any country. You could stay in the hill country not just as tourists, but pampered like Royalty, if you seek to patronize one from a multitude of colonial-styled tourist bungalows situated in scenic locations in the middle of Tea Estates.
