Sri Lanka: Tea Plantations & Lipton’s Seat

Of course the most spectacular part of the Sri Lanka’s highlands are the endless tea plantations covering the beautiful mountains in all directions. As the narrow and twisting road climbs further and further up, the green of the tea bushes extends as far as the eye can see. Lipton’s Seat is the highest point on this part of the highlands plateau and the end of the road, with panoramic views that in clear weather extend all the way to the ocean. Sir Thomas Lipton used to seat here and contemplate the success of his global tea empire. You can seat here and taste some of the finest Sri Lankan tea.
