The heart of Sri Lanka’s tea country
Where the clocks seem reversed
The legacy of colonial plantations, traditions and lifestyles live on here, in the home of Ceylon Tea. Hatton was a busy hill station during the colonial era and continues to be so. At over 4000 feet above sea level, the climate is cool, and many planter’s bungalows now serve as hotels and guest houses offering a total ‘tea experience' - giving good insights to the process of tea from leaf to cup.

Apart from the tea plantations, the town is best known as a getaway to Adam’s Peak and the Sinharaja rain forest reserve.
