Labookelli Tea Centre offers a free tour of the factory and also runs a sales outlet and a restaurant there.

Overview: See a spectacular sun rise from Adam's Peak, at 2200m above sea level. It is a pilgrimage spot sacred to major religions. However, it is an exhausting 7 km trek up the mountain. The season is between December and April when the summit is not misty and relatively dry. The base of the climb on the Hatton side is about 2 hours from Nuwara Eliya.
