Day 4-Nuwaraeliya Green Hills
Blessed with a salubrious climate and breathtaking views of valleys, meadows, mountains and manicured tea plantations, it is hard to imagine that Nuwara Eliya is only 180 Km from hot and humid Colombo. Nuwara Eliya (the City of Lights), also known as ‘Little’ England’, was the favorite hill station of the British Raj who turned this small hill country town into a typical English village. Put your time in Nuwara Eliya to good use – visit a tea plantation, fish for trout, explore the surrounding hills, play a game of golf, wander through the park, shop for country-made woolens, or just relax over a cup of high grown tea and cakes on the lawn of one of the oldest and most prestigious hotels in the island

Day 5-Horton Plains
Horton Plains is a National Park and the highest plateau in the island consisting of grassland interspersed with patches of forest, with some unusual high altitude vegetation. The Plains are a beautiful, silent, strange world with some excellent walks. The most stunning place is the ‘World’s End’, where the southern Horton Plains suddenly ends, and drops off to nearly 700 Meters, which is an awesome sight indeed. This is a favorite place for trekkers, as there are plenty of soft and hard trails, Over Night stay at Hotel in Nuwara Eliya
