Preceded with her exotic sceneries, Climate, Culture and weather, the Garden city of Nuwara Eliya has been a tourist attraction for many decades. Situated at 1990m (6128 ft) above sea level.It is, in fact the coldest city in the island. It would be the most ideal location for a person, who seeks for calm, Colonial-type outing , for it is indeed rich with almost every feature of a city of England, and that being the reason for calling Nuwara Eliya by the name of Little England.

The reconstruction that had been done in and around the area of the famous Lake Gregory has become a tourist attraction not only to foreigners but also for those within the country. The jogging and cycling areas, which had been a long need of the people of the city, has now become a reality. Though the climatic condition varies, those who love a healthy life enjoy taking an early morning walk or jog around the area. And the Municipal Council is doing an excellent work in maintaining the beauty and the quality of the location.The next main attraction are the boat services that had been opened up. These provide great entertainment to visitors of the area.
