Ambewela, Sri Lanka - Have you visited ever???

I got a chance to visit Ambewela, Sri Lanka recently. It is a small tow in up country near Nuwara Eliya (Little England). Its very popular for beautiful sceneries and dairy farms in there including only milk factory in the country. I got chance to get some beautiful pictures also and I have share some of them here.

There are two main farms in Ambewela. One is Ambewela farm and other one is New Zealand Farm. Only the New Zealand farm is open for public to go and see what happening inside.

To visit Ambewela there are two main roads and few sub roads. The most beautiful road is the one go from Nuwara Eliya through Pattipola. You have to travel from Nuwara Eliya in the Nanuoya road and take a left turn before Nanuoya to the Pattipola Road. This road goes through the beautiful Ambewela farm and also some of the jungles. To take the other road you have to go on the Passara road from Nwara Eliya and take a right turn at a small village. But both roads are connecting near the Ambewela railway station.

To go to the Hortan Plains you have to cross the railway crossing at that place and go directly. To go to the New Zealand farm there is a cross road to left hand side after cross the railway line.

So try to go and visit........

The Deer Park

I got the chance to visit a beautiful hotel last week. As I share some photos and details of the Kandalama hotel earlier I would like to share this hotel too with you. So its The Deer Park at Giritale this time.



The Deer Park located at Giritale in Dambulla Polonnaruwa road after passing Habarana and Minneriya. You have to take a turn at Giritale junction and go through the Giritale Dam to the hotel.

Deer Park is not a normal hotel. It consist of small luxury rooms or kabanas. Every kabana have 2 - 4 rooms. Some are two story, some are single. Most of them have open bathrooms.







What I like most is the beautiful scenery of Giritale Reservoir when you come out of your room. There are lots of birds and monkeys too.





Ponds are full of flowers while monkeys jumping from tree to tree. They seems very friendly and photogenic.









This is the main entrance.





Lobby









Dining Hall





Beauty of surrounding
