Cloaked in mist
Explore Haputale
A lively hilltown in the highlands

Perched at the southern edge of the Hill Country, Haputale clings to a long, narrow mountain ridge with the land falling away steeply on both sides. On a clear day you can view the south coast from this ridge, and at night the Hambantota lighthouse glows on the horizon. On a not - so - clear day, great swaths of mist cling to these hillsides.

Like most hill country towns, Haputale is developing rapidly. However, there’s still many things to do in Haputale; whilst on The Pekoe trail you will get to experience parts of the urban sprawl along with scenic views of the mountainous countryside peppered with tea fields.
