Location description from owner

The Central Province region

Nuwara Eliya is the highest town in Sri Lanka (2000 meters) with approximately 27,500 inhabitants. The district capital of the district of Nuwara Eliya stretches hilly over 13 sqkm. Nuwara Eliya is a green city full of forests, tea and vegetable plantations. The most beautiful flowers proliferate like weeds. Ponies are running around freely in the city and the gardens. The climate is pleasant, like Germany in the spring. The normal daily temperature is 20 degrees Celsius; it can sometimes be up to 27 degrees. The night temperatures are at 10 degrees but it can sometimes even go down to 1 degree. Snow does not exist.

The city was built by the British as a holiday destination to get away from the extremely humid heat waves in Colombo in April. From this time comes the most scenic Golf Club in Asia, the artificial lake Gregory (air traffic with seaplanes) and the botanical Victoria Garden. Many houses in the city are built in the British colonial style, so Nuwara Eliya is called also Little England. Life here is to call rather contemplative.

Although there are many restaurants, hotels and pubs (cheapest beer nationwide, about 1 Euro for the 0.62 litre bottle), but a nightlife not take place. There is a daily market with the best and freshest vegetables, as well as a bazaar where very cheap textiles are kept for sale, including world-renowned luxury brands, which are produced legally here in the country but also cheap fakes from China. The district hospital - the General Hospital - is currently being remodelled and will get the most modern equipment.

Only in the month of April is the city like the moon. Then a kind of carnival takes the " Season" instead . There are exhibitions; horse, motorcycle, car and road racings are performed. You will find everywhere booths with food and offers of all kinds. During this period we have even 14 days school holidays. In good weather - what we have at this time mostly - flows semi Colombo to Nuwara Eliya. Many sleep in their cars, because all the guest rooms and even cow sheds are rented out.

The majority of the residents are descendants of the Tamils who have been brought by the British as labourers for their tea plantations from southern India into the country. The world's best tea comes from this district. Racial problems do not exist here and the people are much more amiable than in the tourist areas on the west coast and the capital.

Nuwara Eliya

Nuwara Eliya ist die höchste Stadt in Sri Lanka (2000 Meter) mit ungefähr 27.500 Einwohnern. Die Bezirkshaupstadt des Bezirks Nuwara Eliya erstreckt sich hügelig über 13 km². Nuwara Eliya ist eine grüne Stadt voll von Wäldern, Tee- und Gemüseplantagen. Die schönsten Blumen wuchern wie Unkraut. Ponys laufen frei in der Stadt und den Gärten umher. Das Klima ist angenehm, so wie Deutschland im Frühling. Die normale Tagestemperatur liegt bei 20 Grad Celsius es kann auch mal bis zu 27 Grad warm werden. Die Nachttemperaturen liegen bei 10 Grad aber es kann auch schon mal bis auf 1 Grad heruntergehen. Schnee gibt es nicht.

Die Stadt wurde von den Briten als Urlaubdomizil erbaut, um den extrem feuchten Hitzewellen in Colombo im April zu entfliehen. Aus dieser Zeit stammen auch der - wohl landschaftlich schönste - Golfclub in Asien, der künstlich angelegte Gregory See (Flugverkehr mit Wasserflugzeugen) und der botanische Victoria Garten. Viele Häuser in der Stadt sind im britischen Kolonialstiel gebaut; man nennt Nuwara Eliya auch Klein-England. Das Leben hier ist eher beschaulich zu nennen.

Obwohl es viele Restaurants, Hotels und Kneipen (preiswertestes Bier landesweit, ca. 1 Euro für die 0,62 Liter Flasche) gibt, findet ein Nachtleben nicht statt. Dafür gibt es einen täglichen Markt mit dem besten und frischesten Gemüse, sowie einen Bazar auf dem sehr preiswert Textilien feil gehalten werden, darunter auch weltbekannte Edelmarken, die hier im Land hergestellt werden aber auch billige Fälschungen aus China. Das Kreiskrankenhaus - das General Hospital - wird gerade umgebaut und erhält die modernste Ausstattung.

Nur im Monat April ist die Stadt wie aus dem Häuschen. Dann findet die "Season", so eine Art Karneval statt. Es gibt Ausstellungen, Pferde-, Motorrad-, Auto und Geländerennen werden durchgeführt. Überall Buden mit Speisen und Angeboten aller Art. In diese Zeit fallen auch 14 Tage Schulferien. Bei gutem Wetter, was wir zu dieser Zeit meistens haben, strömt halb Colombo nach Nuwara Eliya. Viele schlafen in ihren Autos, da es keine Zimmer mehr gibt.

Die Mehrheit der Bewohner sind Nachkommen der Tamilen, die die Briten für ihre Teeplantagen als Arbeiter aus Südindien ins Land geholt haben. Der weltbeste Tee kommt aus diesem Bezirk. Rassenprobleme gibt es hier nicht und die Menschen sind liebenswürdig und hilfsbereit
