Myself, Malith(Our DBA Engineer),Dilen(Lead of the System Team) and Tharnidu(Senior Software Engineer). Tharindu was taking a self shot 🙂
Pussellawa is a small town in Kandy District, Sri Lanka. It is located along the A5 road between Gampola and Nuwara Eliya.
I could not wait anymore, I told our driver to stop the vehicle as I wanted to enjoy the beauty of the Pussellawa Rothschild Tea estate.
Pussellawa Rothschild Tea estate surrounded by lush green hills and tea plantations , It is one of the most scenic places to see and enjoy when you travel to Nuwara Eliya.
Rothschild Tea Estate has 2000-acre and entire planation grows over 30 millions pounds of tea annually and is distributed worldwide.
Rothschild was the first tea estate in the world to receive the Global Gap Certificate and also won the “Top Entrepreneur Award” in Sri Lanka couple of times.
This visit to Up country side was after a long time, therefore I was stunned by the beauty of the place.
If you are not in hurry, I recommend you to be in this place at least for an hour. You can relax your mind and body together.
The fresh air that you breathe, you can never find in Colombo.
Dilen was taking a photo of me.
We went down to see the tea planation. You can do the same without any permission.
A lot of travelers visit the plantation.
Believe it is FREE of charge
While I was enjoying the beauty of this plantation, Ladies on the photo said, “Photo Photo Sir”.
I though , they wanted me to take photos of them.
They act as if they pluck tea leaves.
I took couple of photos and showed them.
They said “Money Money Sir”.
Oh!!!, then I realised what did they mean by “Photo Photo Sir”.
We gave some money. They were happy too. Be generous on them!!!!!. “What Goes Around What Comes Around.”
