Stadium
“The one and only race course remaining in Sri Lanka is 1868 metres (6129 ft.) above the sea level, which is also one of the highest of the world. And the race track is 1800 metres circumference with around 300 metres of straight distance. The Governor Samuel Baker’s brother John Baker is known for introducing horse racing to Nuwara Eliya and it all began with him creating a training course on the hill for his English thoroughbreds. If you are interested to know when the first race meeting was held at Nuwara Eliya, it runs back to 1875 with the organization of the Nuwara Eliya Gymkhana Club. And these meetings were held continuously until the 1900s.”

National Park
“Just beautiful. The place where Mowgly and the Jungle Book was set. I suggest take it easy and plan a night at a camping site on the Kumana river. One day trips just make a lot of vehicle traffic and it is hard to see animals; waiting for them at the river is more efficient and way more beautiful”
