Sri Lanka’s lush green hill country is a patchwork of rolling, seemingly endless tea plantations. A visit to one of these estates is a defining experience of any trip to this magnificent country. The lower mountain slopes of Sri Lanka’s verdant highlands are swathed in millions of tea bushes making up the estates. These historic tea plantations are a legacy of British colonial culture, while the sight of Tamil pickers in colorful garments gathering delicate tea leaves by hand remains an archetypal image of Sri Lanka. Visiting a tea factory is one of the musts during your Sri Lanka stay. There are plenty of tea estates & tea factories along the road.
