THE GLORY AND THE PARTIES Experience Lipton’s Seat Day Tour

Lipton’s Seat is a high observation point in the hills of Poonagala. Located on the top of the town’s namesake, Poonagala Hill, it is also near the Dambatenne Tea Factory. Lipton’s Seat is so named because the famed Scottish baron and tea planter Sir Thomas Lipton used it as the seat to survey his empire in a time long gone but not forgotten.

  • Know Before You Book
The point of Lipton’s Seat is reached by climbing for around 7km surrounded by peaceful green tea plantations and an occasional colorful tea plucker. There are two routes available; one from the Nayabedda estate in Bandarawela, and the second through the Dambatenna estate in Haputale. Both routes have entrances marked with sign boards and narrow paved roads. Some parts of the road even have some of the original stone constructions from the British era of Ceylon, and hence are worth seeing from a historical point of view. The climb takes about two and a half hours on average, after a visitor reaches the hill top.

    Tended to be a ‘walk to the next stop and we’ll talk’ type of tour, rather than talking as we went. Covered lots of good spots within the city. Be aware that they won’t run the tour with small numbers (actually they will offer you a private tour for a fixed price). A few stairs, so a little difficult with strollers.

    We had a great tour with Jelena around the city center of Belgrade! As it was my first time in Belgrade, I wanted to get a first flavour of the city together with some info on the history and landmarks. This tour served this purpose so well! Jelena is so knowledgeable and very patient with the asked questions. And be sure she will sprinkle some juicy stories about the city here and there. Would definitely recommend the tour!

    We met under the clock (to specify which tour this was). Marijana was so knowledgeable, confident and audible (so important for such a large). She was considerate In choosing a shady spot to stop when possible. This was an afternoon tour (I think 4 pm). Downtown Belgrade has so many amazing historical buildings. Marijana also let us taste the traditional homemade liquor. She was so helpful in suggesting eating places and giving directions. Highly recommend Marijana.
