A short glance on the City
Nuwara Eliya is a mountain station at 1,868 m (6,128
ft) of altitude, in a splendid landscape. The city pretends to be
particularly well-kept and neat, and the always green grass gives
to the locality an aspect of “colonial British style".
Nuwara Eliya was built entirely during the 19th century and its
architecture mimics that of an English country town, with red-brick
walls, country house like hill club and mock-Tudor half-timbering.
Blessed with salubrious climate, breathtaking views
of valleys, meadows, mountains and greenery; it's hard to imagine
that Nuwara Eliya is only 180 Km from the hot and humid Colombo.
Temperatures are 14C-21C (Jan- April) 16C-18C (May-Aug) 15C- 18C
