Where to stay in Haputale

While Haputale offers few international chain hotels, the town has a solid selection of affordable, locally owned accommodations. Because of the excellent price point on lots of the town's lodgings, many travelers use Haputale as a jumping-off point to visit the nearby national park and other attractions. For an authentic experience during your trip to Haputale, consider staying at a friendly guesthouse or small inn, many of which offer home-cooked meals and arrange travel to surrounding areas. While this destination used to fill up with tourists, its popularity has dwindled recently, so making reservations should not present too much difficulty.
