Sri Lanka’s primary source of wealth comes from the production of tea, and tea aficionados all over the world are familiar with Sri Lankan tea. When visiting the Upcountry in Sri Lanka, you can view a huge region and a variety of tea cultivation. You can take pleasure in the tuk-tuk tour, which passes by the Ramboda falls, the tea museum, the tea factory, and the tea gardens.

The tea plantation tuk-tuk tour begins after the guests have finished their breakfast. We will first head to the former Hanthana Tea Factory, which was built in 1925, is now home to the Ceylon Tea Museum. It is located 1.9 miles (3 km) south of Kandy. Clifford Ratwatte led the initiative to incorporate The Ceylon Tea Museum on January 9, 1998, in accordance with Section 21 of the Companies Act of 1982. (Chairman of the Sri Lanka Tea Board). The museum made its official debut on December 1st, 2001. Before the Sri Lanka Tea Board and the Planters’ Association of Sri Lanka renovated it in 2001, the four-story tea factory had lain empty for more than ten years. The museum has displays on early tea pioneers, including James Taylor and Thomas Lipton, as well as a large collection of antique equipment used in tea processing. On the ground floor are kept: colonial generators, rollers, dryers, fermentation tables, sorting devices, etc. from the 19th century. The library and museum are located on the second floor. A store is located on the third floor, while a restaurant and tea rooms are located on the top floor.

Our next stop is the Damro Labookellie Tea Centre and Tea Garden. One of the tea facilities we pass on the way to Nuwara Eliya is the Damro tea facility. It was formerly known as the Mackwoods and is now Sri Lanka’s oldest tea shop. A massive 5000 hectares of opulent tea plantations are there. Since each type of tea has a unique production procedure, you will get the opportunity to learn about both black and white tea making. A complimentary taste of tea is offered at the conclusion of the factory tour.

Our final destination is the Ramboda falls, which rush down a cliff with a tier-like rock face and are close to the Nuwara Eliya highway. The Ramboda Falls, which drop from a height of 358 feet, are the eleventh highest waterfall in Sri Lanka (109m). A river called Panna Oya, a tributary of Kothmale Oya, is responsible for creating the waterfall. This is wonderful because an emerald forest frames it, giving it a breathtaking appearance.

Then we will head back to your hotel, ending our tuk-tuk tour.
