What To Expect
Your destination is the summit of Single Tree Hill, sometimes called One Tree Hill, one of Sri Lanka’s highest peaks at 6,889 feet (2,100 meters). However, since it rises 820 feet (250 meters) above Nuwara, it only counts as a hill and is relatively easy to climb.
Walk up through the lush tea plantations, following the dirt track coiling up the slopes. Stop for energy bars on the route, admiring the beautiful tea country as you rest and your guide points out places of interest. A backup vehicle will accompany you in case it’s needed.
After roughly two hours, including stops, reach the top and enjoy an hour to admire the spectacular views and famous lone tree. Gaze down over Nuwara and Lake Gregory, and depending on the weather, absorb the panoramic views of the Haggala Mountains and peaks of Sri Pada and Piduruthalagala.
Lastly, hike down to Lake Gregory and enjoy a waterside picnic lunch of pasta, a boiled egg, sausages, and fruit. Your tour concludes here when your guide departs.
