The train stops in Nanu Oya from where we shared a taxi to Nuwara Eliya. We didn’t prebook anything so got dropped of at Hi Lanka Hostels with two other Germans. Hi Lanka was however too expensive for us so we found a homestay nearby. The area looked nothing like the photos of rolling Tea hills when one Googles Nuwara Eliya, it was also extremely cold compared to the previous few weeks. We were thus feeling a bit out of it and just went to bed early. The next morning we almost ‘gave up’ and went straight too the railway station to continue to Ella, but luckily we pushed through and went to the Pedro Tea Estate. The tuktuk we took broke down halfway so we walked the last 2km to the factory and got to see the rolling tea plantations. We enjoyed a cup of tea overlooking the plantation and bought some to take home. We then took the bus and two tuktuks back to the train station for the seocnd leg of the most scenic railway line to Kandy.
