Nuwara Eliya is a beautiful little city situated in the mountainous plains of the Central Province. Historically it was known by the colonialists as ‘Little England’ because of its very British 'look and feel.' This famous upcountry town is situated 1868 meters (6128 feet) above sea level and due to this high altitude maintains a sub-tropical highland climate.  Sri Lanka's highest mountain ‘Pidurutalagala’ with a height of 2,527 m (8,292 ft) is very close to this town and can be seen prominently on a clear day.  However, Pidurutalagala is now cordoned off as a high security zone since the summit is made used for state communication and TV transmission towers. Another great attraction in close proximity to Nuwara Eliya, is Horton Plains, situated to the south of Nuwara Eliya. This plain is a unique ecological zone of wet patana grassland with a cloud forest and is home to unique and endemic wildlife. 

The Nuwara Eliya District is famous for producing the best Ceylon Tea in the world as the cool and moist climate are great factors for tea leaves to thrive on. Famous waterfalls such as Devon and St.Clair falls are situated close to Nuwara Eliya and the famous Lake Gregory in the heart of the city is a much sought after tourist attraction
