Among the jagged peaks of the central highlands of Sri Lanka we encounter the little-known lunar plains.
Moon Plains are huge plains covered with tundra-like vegetation and beautiful rhododendrons.
These large and beautiful slopes vaguely resemble the lunar plains. Hence its name.
Where is it ?
The Moon Plains is very close to the city of Nuwara Eliya.
So it is a complementary activity to carry out in case you have time after visiting a tea factory and Lake Gregory.
The visit to Moon Plains takes place mounted in a 4×4 jeep.
It is an activity that only locals go to.
So if you are one of those who like non-tourist activities or visits, you will definitely like Moon Plains.
And this region is the coldest in the whole country.
Furthermore, the vegetation is completely different.
Moon Plains are one of the locals’ favorite visits to Nuwara Eliya.
The Sinhalese worship these plains where moose, buffalo and even leopards live.
Sri Lanka is indeed the perfect place for children and for people who like animals and nature.
This country is incredibly green.
It is impossible not to find elephant herds on safari or even on the same road traveling.
It is also very easy to see leopards, macaques and other types of monkeys, giant squirrels, jackals, etc. etc
Furthermore, walking with children and adults through the Peradeniya Botanical Garden is a delight. Along with the giant trees and millions of plants, we will also find monkeys and other animals in this immense place.
