Nuwara Eliya, was first conceived as the health center before being "discovered" by Sir Samuel Baker, a well known British explorer, in a British hunting party who fell under his spell in 1846 and provides to make his house, so he imported Nuwara Eliya all the elements of an English countryside, including a bailiff, the cows of Hereford and Durham, and even a blacksmith and his forge. In less than 50 years, this place has become the first among the properties of a hill on the island. Located in the heart of tea country, the phenomenal rise and importance of this industry has also contributed to the growing reputation of Nuwara Eliya. Both road and rail approaches to get to Nuwara Eliya are of spectacular beauty. The air is cold and intoxicating breath of the great cloud crowned by lines of cypress fragrant and slightly minty, with species of wild mint and eucalyptus. A deep frosted turf with daisies. The post office with its clock tower, is authentic and English. The jewel in the crown of Nuwara Eliya is the golf course with 18 holes and 117 years old at the heart of the city. The course begins with a corner of the city and is nestled in the valley between the city and the surrounding wooded hills. At 1890 meters, the field has fairways lined with pine trees & bunkers. The 9th is an island green surrounded by bunkers. The rivers come into play on 6. This is one of the most scenic routes and natural world.
