Nuwara Eliya

Nuwara Eliya is the heart of Sri Lanka' tea country. The highest town in all of Sri Lanka at 6,187 feet (1,886 meters) above sea level, Nuwara Eliya is nicknamed "Little England" and was planned from scratch by the British in the 1840s as a hill station, or holiday town, after they discovered this small basin, surrounded by mountains, with a cool climate afforded by its high elevation. The driving force in its founding was Samuel Baker, a British explorer who also discovered the source of Africa's Nile River.
