The Scottish tea baron Sir Thomas Lipton used to survey his burgeoning empire from here. Lipton’s seat is a panoramic overlooking destination in Sri lanka. Handapanagala lake, Chandrika lake, Uda walwe lake, Wedi hiti Kanda mountains, and also the...more
All reviews tuk tuk tea plantation sri lanka amazing views early morning walked down rotti walk up great walk clear view hairpin bends viewing point nice view hot tea plantation workers small shop entrance gate
This is a must-see if you’re staying in Haputale, not just because of the views but also because of the beautiful tea plantations all along the way. I highly recommend walking at least for part of the way—we took a tuk tuk up and then...More
What a disappointment ...
I have to say, first, that the view is incredible. Definitely ... if you know how to forget that they destroyed the whole Nature to build this.

Amazing. I would recommend getting a tuktuk to drive you to the top as it is a decent walk, and then to walk down to the tea factory at a leisurely pace. It's 4 or 5 km but it's all downhill if done this way....More

Nice view and if you are trained walk through the fields (not the road) to the tea factory of Dambethenna. You basically take the ways clockwise around lipton seat. At the factory is a bus going back to Haputale.

Epic place to visit! We rented bikes in Ella, and drove to Liptons seat. There was beautiful old tea road with stunning view and endless tea plantations. Recommend for everyone. At the end of the road you will get tea and cookies from locals. Recommend...More
My Kulansa Tours driver wisely opted to park our vehicle at the Dambatenne Tea factory so that I could take a 20 minute tuk tuk ride up the long, perilously steep, hair pin bend, narrow and winding road to Lipton’s Seat
Passing acres of blindingly...More
