Ella: Lipton's Seat Tour with Dambetanna Tea Factory Visit

1. Ella: Lipton's Seat Tour with Dambetanna Tea Factory Visit

You'll begin your tour as the locals travel, with a tuk tuk ride through the tea plantations, driving past with beautiful scenes of lush fields. As you ascend through the winding roads to reach the highest point of the valley at Lipton's Seat, you'll look down to see amazing views over the tea plantations. The Lipton's Seat viewpoint is a fantastic photo opportunity, where you can take a photo with the statue of Lipton himself. Next, you will visit the longest-operating tea factory in Sri Lanka. The Dambetanna Tea Factory was built in 1890 by Scottish tea baron Sir Thomas Lipton. The factory tour will give you in an in-depth look at the entire tea making process. Finally relax in the middle of the tea fields with a typical Sri Lankan lunch and enjoy the stunning surroundings, before you return to your hotel via the tuk tuk transfer.

Nice round

Nice tour through villages in Sri Lanka, up through the mountains to finally get to Lipton Tea Seat. The views are fantastic, there was good food and of course tea. With the guide you really got to see the highlands of Sri Lanka. A must!
