Sri Lanka is a country best seen through the train, and there is none better than the  Hatton-Haputale ride that passes through some of the most beautiful terrain any country in the world can offer. The train that winds around and through the mountains will gift you a great view of the forests, carpets of tea plantations and beautiful waterfalls the country is known for. The one of a kind experience will remain a highlight of the tour to Sri Lanka.

The tour starts with the drive to Hatton through a less traveled beautiful mountainous terrain through Bogawantalawa valley and Caselreigh reservoir. You can view a colonial era stone church on the banks of the reservoir before you reach the Hatton railway station
