Top 5 places to visit In Nuwara Eliya with Family – for a memorable trip to the hills

Nuwara Eliya is in the hill country of Sri Lanka and most locals travel to this destination when they need to get away from the rush of the city. The cool climes are perfect for relaxation. Here are a few places you can visit during a trip here.


Victoria Park

This is the first place anyone in Nuwara Eliya would visit. Victoria Park is known to be South Asia's best maintained Park. The area is vast and filled with rich greenery. There are a number of trees and various flowering plants that beautify the place. If you look closely you will be able to spot a few birds chirping in the treetops and a few squirrels and other garden animals running around on the lawn. The park is a romantic spot as well and you will see many couples walking hand in hand here.


Tea Estates

There are several tea estates in Sri Lanka and Nuwara Eliya is the most famous spot for tea. Almost all the major tea estates offer tours of the entire complex. This might be a simple drink, but when you visit an estate, you'll have the chance to see the entire process. This means right from the point of plucking the tender leaves of tea to packaging and everything else that's in between! You will be able to enjoy a lovely cup of steaming tea, short eats and cake at the cafes within the complex as well.


Gregory Lake

This is one of the most visited attractions in Nuwara Eliya. A little away from the town and within easy reach from many of the holiday bungalows in Nuwara Eliya, this lake is surrounded by lush greenery. You can either take a walk, enjoy a little picnic with family or opt for the adrenaline rush. You can indulge in water sports like rowing. You can also take a romantic boat ride if you are on a romantic escape here. A visit in the evening would be best if you just want to enjoy a little peace and quiet.


Strawberry Fields

Nuwara Eliya is one of the coolest places on the island where it is possible to cultivate strawberries. Now you can even visit the strawberry fields and get to know how they are plucked and made into jam and other strawberry products. This is certainly a novel experience, so try your best to book a tour here. You can always find out more about this tour from the front desk of local hotels like Scottish Planter.


Moon Plains

If you are up for some adventure, then head over to Moon Plains. Purchase tickets at the office and book your seat on the safari jeep. Hop in and it'll be a bumpy ride right up to the plains. On the way, you will be able to see potato plantations and other misty hills in the distance. You will also come across cattle on the pastures. Reach the top and you will be rewarded with vies like no other. It is ideal for a few pictures.
