Lipton’s Seat, Haputale
(4.7/5 based on 550+ 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.

  • Very nice place and very misty and beautiful You can see five different locations when you go up there The drive is superb . Better take a Trishaw from half way as its difficult to drive. 
  • A definite place to visit in Haputale. I love the sceneries . I can spend hours at Lipton Seat by looking at the views.... Beautiful place to be at least once in your lifetime.

  • 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!
