A popular thing to do in the Ella region, Lipton’s seat is a view point with one of the most breathtaking views in Sri Lanka. Located in a tea estate, high in the mountains, Lipton’s Seat was a favourite look out point of Sir Thomas Lipton, a pioneer of Ceylon Tea, when surveying his vast Tea Plantations. This is a moderately difficult trek that can easily be customised to be easier or more challenging.
Depart the hotel in the morning, and arrive at the scenic Dambetenna Tea Estate. Hike from the Estate up to Liptons seat with its world famous view. Continue to travel amongst multiple tea plantations and local villages pausing for a packed meal when you are hungry, before arriving at an ancient Hindu temple in time to observe a traditional Pooja.
