The Hill Country is a relaxed area famous for its panoramic views, its nice climate, refreshing waterfalls, its rich colonial architecture and historic.

Once a impenetrable jungle, the Hill Country was opened up by the British colonialists in the 19th C who were to first plant coffee, and then clear huge swathes of land to plant the much more successful crop of tea which remains one of the island’s top exports.
