When I was planing my trip to Sri Lanka, first thing I googled for images and saw pictures of beautiful leopards. Wow… I have the chance to see a wild leopard in Sri Lanka? Where exactly? First hit: Yala National Park.
Did you know Sri Lanka was previously called Ceylon, under British colonial rule until they gained their independence in 1972. Does the word “Ceylon” remind you of something? Tea? Yes, right! The rainy, humid and cool temperatures of Sri Lanka’s Hill Country make the perfect conditions for high-quality tea. And Nuwara Eliya is the hearth of the Hill Country.
