Proceed to Haputale.

Stop by the upper Diyaluma Falls to trek your way to the top of the 2nd highest waterfall among the waterfalls of Sri Lanka and 6th highest in the world, Diyaluma falls is an absolutely majestic view. It acquires a horsetail shape after falling and leaping over a cliff and is the perfect spot for a full day adventure. There are multiple falls and natural pools throughout this hike as well.

Head to your hotel in Haputale after the climb. Once you are freshened up, you have time to visit the famous Dambatanne Tea Factory.  This popular tea factory was built in 1890 by Sir Thomas Lipton, one of the most famous figures in tea history. The tour through the works is an education on the processes involved in the fermentation, rolling, drying, cutting, sieving and grading of tea. It's probably the most comprehensive tea-factory tour around, and afterwards you can sip a cuppa.
