Perched along a stunning mountain ridge, the quiet town of Haputale holds a treasure trove of activities and experiences for the wandering explorer. Labelled as one of the most overlooked destinations in Asia in 2010 by CNN, this sleepy town is approximately 1431m above sea level and is rich with flora and fauna. Surrounded by mountains of tea and cloud forests, Haputale is generally colder than its surrounding towns. One of the most famous attractions here is known as Lipton’s Seat; where Sir Thomas Lipton would sit on a fine day and admire his tea plantations from. Take a stroll through lush plantations, hike up stunning hills, wander through national parks or simply sit in your garden with a warm cup of Ceylon tea as you enjoy the cold weather and the breathtaking landscapes.

Tour Overview

Activity 01

Nature and tea plantation trekking to world famous Lipton seat (AM)

Lipton’s Seat was the iconic point where Sir Thomas Lipton, the Scotsman who followed James Taylor’s footsteps in tea plantations, would sit and admire his acres of tea plantations. The Dambatenna Estate where the tea from his estate is produced and packed, has been in operation since the 1800s. It’s a great place to enjoy a mesmerizing view of the surrounding verdant hills of tea and vegetable patches.
Activity 02

Rest and relax in comfortable climate

Experience community life, schooling little kids and livelihood. (Haputale town is very nice in evenings with mist, cool climate, simple smiling people, Tamil music around, small restaurants “kade” with delicious foods, and many more)
Activity 03

Adisham bungalow tour

The Adisham Bungalow is a country house located in Haputale that is now being used as the Adisham monastery of Saint Benedict. The bungalow was initially the home of the famous tea planter, Sir Thomas Lester Villiers, who built it to resemble his house back home in England. Although only parts of the house can be visited, much of the original antiques and furniture still remain inside.
