Pussellawa villas in Hill Country, Sri Lanka

The Pussellawa region is famed for its beautiful green tea-cloaked hillsides, gushing waterfalls and scrubby mountains that form the beginning of the steep climb into the Central Hill Country. Situated roughly half way between Kandy (32km) and Nuwara Eliya (35km), Pussellawa’s elevation of 855m has a pleasant cooling effect on the climate; whilst days are typically hot and sunny, the evenings might be chilly and the mornings misty. The village of Pussellawa is small – with little more than a couple of banks and a 65-year-old Government Rest House that is a popular stopping point for its excellent rice and curry lunches – but has a magnificent setting. Paths through tea estates can be ambled along in appreciation of this picturesque region, tea factories may be visited and the work of colourful tea pluckers admired as they nimbly pick the top two leaves and a bud of these historic bushes to fling into a wicker basket on their backs. To the west of Pussellawa is the Kothmale Reservoir where you can visit a viewpoint overlooking the hydroelectric dam, whilst to the south is Ramboda Falls which cascades 109m down three sheer rock faces in a cooling sheen of spray and mist.
