This trail begins in Norwood, the gateway to the Bogawantalawa Valley - also known as the ‘Golden Valley of Tea’. On your walk, you climb up towards a ridge that separates the Bogawantalawa Valley and the Maskeliya Valley, considered one of the most beautiful valleys in the tea country, which is also home to the sacred summit of Adam’s Peak.
From the top of the ridge, zig zag your way to Norwood Estate where you will enjoy wonderful views of the Maskeliya side and catch a glimpse of Adam’s Peak across the lake.
On the second part of the trek, as you descend to the Bogawantalawa Valley, you will follow small trails that lead to the Kew Estate. Look out for the colonial-era tea factory here. You can expect views of the beautiful countryside towards Bogawantalawa town, past bountiful tea fields, village roads, as well a very picturesque church, hindu kovils, and a charming cottage. The stage ends in Bogawantalawa, the town that gives name to the entire valley and is surrounded by mountains shrouded in mist and emerald landscapes.
