Nuwara Eliya





 
Nuwara Eliya  
Sri Lanka’s picturesque hill resort at 5199 ft above sea level is renowned for it’s perennial spring like climate, pretty waterfalls, and carpets of lush green tea between deep chasms. Once the favourite town of British planters, the buildings still resemble old English cottages.

Pinnawela Elephant Orphanage
A visit to the Elephant Orphanage near Kegalle, 20 km (12 miles) west of Kandy on the Colombo Highway, where young orphaned or abandoned elephants are cared for, is a must. The herd usually numbers about 50, from tiny infants (tiny in elephant terms, that is) to hefty adolescents and young adults. The best time to visit is between 10:00 and midday, and 14:00 and 16:00, when the keepers bring their charges down to the river to bath and play. 

Polonnaruwa
Polonnaruwa rose to fame as the capital after the decline of Anuradhapura. It’s period of greatness was from the 10th – 12th centuries AD. The entire landscape of the region is punctuated by huge man made reservoirs, veritable seas the most famous of which is the Parakrama Samudra or the sea of Parakrama, large in size that the Colombo harbour.

The monuments of this city mainly date from the reigns of Parakrama Bahu the Great and King Nissanka Malla. Don’t miss the Gal Vihare complex, with the fine sculptures of the recumbent, standing and seated Buddha’s.
