Single Tree Hill Trek, Nuwara Eliya
2 February 2022
Single Tree hill or One tree hill Mountain is the tenth highest peak in Sri Lanka (2100 meters), rising only 250 meters above the Nuwara Eliya city. Single tree hill is easily accessible by use of the road across the tea estate of the same name. Single Tree Hill Mountain is one of the most panoramic vantage points of Nuwara Eliya which gives an extraordinary view of the city below where you could absorb the beauty of the Haggala Mountain, Pidurutalagala range, Lake Gregory and the whole of the northern slice of the Horton Plains. A traveller would have a wonderful time walking up the hill amidst the immaculate Nuwara Eliya atmosphere.
Walking through the natural montane forest and a eucalyptus plantation, you will come across a variety of bird species, butterflies, lizards, frogs and a vivid array of wildflowers. You will eventually reach “Shanthipura”, Sri Lanka’s highest village with an elevation of 2034 meters, where the observation point will provide you yet another bird’s eye view of the Garden City of Nuwara Eliya.
