Hot and cold in Nuwara Eliya, a non-Nuwara Eliya Experience
September 3-5, 2012 – Nuwara Eliya, Sri Lanka
After having come from the already pleasantly cool temperature in Ella, I moved on to the even colder Hill Country town of Nuwara Eliya, which most visitors coming in by train would recognize through its manicured tea plantations like this:
Baan Chang Elephant Park Part 1: Waterfalls, Rapids, Rafts & Lanterns
At $100 for only 2 days, this was the single most expensive thing I paid for in my trip so far, and I couldn’t be happier about the decision to push through with it.
I initially just wanted to take mahout training (elephant whispering), but when I saw Baan Chang’s packages, I figured I’d take 1 “adventure” day as well. Let me take you step by step through Day 1. :)
