The Bogawantalawa Valley in central Sri Lanka produces nearly 12 million kilos of high grown tea from over 39 million finely maintained tea bushes. Sri Lanka is the fourth largest producer of tea in the world.
On one side the Valley it is surrounded by one of the world’s most beautiful national parks and wilderness reserves, on the other side it is bordered by verdant mountains shrouded in mist. The ancient name of the Valley, Baghavanthalawa, literally means “the plain of the gods”.
