The central highlands of Sri Lanka are packed with mountains carpeted with lush green tea estates, gushing waterfalls mingling with the clouds and breath-taking landscapes sparkling in sunlight and disappearing under the rising mist. When travelling towards the North Central Valley of the Kings, mountains covered with lush green forests disappear under the glare of the sun giving way to acres of light green carpets of paddy fields fed by ancient reservoirs. Giant statues of Lord Buddha rise above the forest covering, while ancient palaces stand abandoned to the woods as if waiting for their long departed master.
