Lipton’s Seat, Haputale

(4.7/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web)
A hilltop lookout point, Lipton’s Seat offers views over five different provinces. When you reach the base of the hill, you can take a drive up to the top or brave the 7 km (4.3 mi) uphill hike--like Sir Thomas Lipton of Lipton Tea fame once did. Lipton’s Seat is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Haputale Edition.

  • The trip up is by Tuk-tuk but a few hardy souls walked through the tea plantation to get there and saved themselves the fare (3000R). We were forewarned on the day that we visited that we would be luc...  more »
  • The views from the Lipton's seat locker can with the world's match end! However, the walk is there (or back) just gorgeous! The tea plantations, the workers, de landscape... Highly recommended!

  • 我們到的時候剛好遇到斯里蘭卡的旱季,茶園工人們那天剛好休息,沒能看到採茶工人很可惜,但沿途的茶園與山谷風景真的很漂亮!  more »

  • We took a TukTuk from Haputale up to the gate house and walked the rest (30-45 min steady climb) to Lipton's Seat. The views are really breathtaking and the walk through the tea plantations is also very nice. We walked back to Dambatenne factory and took the bus back to Haputale. Very nice trip, early start is recommended because of the clouds/heat.
  • Beautiful place in a tea estate and have hitorical value. Good view from top of the mountain. There is no any place buy food or place. For a shop you have to drive around 3-4 km.
  • This destination is really awesome for all local and foreign visitors to spend your time relaxing admiring nature. Give a panoramic view of the surrounding area. Really good for the photographs too. Access roads are very small. So be careful.
  • Highest place in this area.. most beautiful place.. you can see many areas around this place. Must go and visit
  • Awesome view of the city and the green tea plantation. Worth the walk. If you are lazy, you can go by tuk tuk all the way through. A must go!
