Located on a picturesque 25 acre tea plantation just 30 km away from Sri Lanka’s hill capital of Kandy and approximately 150 km away from Colombo, Madulkelle Tea and Eco Lodge commands a majestic view of the UNESCO World Heritage Knuckles Mountain Range – so called due to its shape similar to the knuckles of a clenched fist.
The quaint little hamlet of Madulkelle with it colourful and happy people is just 1.5 km away. The village is inhabited mainly by Tamils of Indian origin, originally brought down to Sri Lanka in the late 1800s by the British planters to help them with their tea plantations. The Madulkelle village is a typical Sri Lankan town featuring a hospital, post office, schools and plenty of shops catering to the basic needs of its residents.
The close proximity of the Madulkelle Tea and Eco Lodge to Kandy makes it an ideal location from which to explore not only the historic town of Kandy, but also attractions such as the Botanical Gardens of Peradeniya as well as the Elephant Orphanage in Pinnawela.
