  • Certain worth it, we took a tuk tuk (recently done Adams Peak and didn't fancy the trek!) up and down and stopped at various breath taking view points on the way. Recommend doing it as early as possib...  more »
  • You can arrive by bus to Dambatenne factory or take a tuk-tuk to the top at Lipton's seat. We recommend taking the short cuts to be immersed in the nature and say hello to the tea pickers. We also wen...  more »

  • Scenic. If you have the time, climb all the way. The route through tea estates is amazing. On the top, its cold and the view is good (depending on your luck!). Good place to see if you’re in the area!
  • Great view from up there and road is small and you need to have a best driver to up there. That place have only one pastry shop and it was bit expensive but it's worth. Great place to visit with your children's and love ones. The view is unforgettable.
  • The definitive place to visit when you are passing through or staying in Haputale. You are promised breathtaking panoramic views which you are supposed to see multiple Districts from this vantage point. Just over 10 km from Haputale Town provides a scenic walk/hike or if you are so inclined will provide 1500 metres ascent through a gorgeous valley with lush tea estates. You will only get a refresher bite or drink at the summit, so at least carry some water.
  • Lipton's seat is a spectacular place and It has a super awesome view. When I was there I felt I was in heaven. It is full of mist. If you are hoping to visit Haputale, It is must to visit Lipton's seat. It is good to visit there in early mornings
  • Every traveler should visit this place as its scenic beauty through tea estate of Lipton’s. Most important thing thing is, the place should be visited in the early morning hours and when the time is around 10, the mist comes down and covers the whole area. May be you can’t see the Lipton’s seat at that time. You can take vans to climb the hill rather than going on ur own vehicle. The road is bit risky since it’s too narrow.
