The Sri Lanka Travel Specialists
Upper Glencairn is a basic holiday bungalow nestled among the hills of the Dickoya region in central Sri Lanka at over 4,000 feet above sea level. This old planter's bungalow, which belongs to the Bank of Ceylon, is a convenient if simple base for travellers climbing Adam’s Peak and is often used the night before or the morning after the climb as a resting point. The property is relatively basic inside, but the tea-estate views are magnificent and the bungalow, let by the room, is good value.
Upper Glencairn has four double rooms and one triple, all of which come with an attached bathroom with h/w showers. The rooms are non a/c, as is the norm in this cool corner of the island.
Sri Lankan rice and curries and a few western dishes are served here at the main dining area. There is a bar and lounge area furnished with comfortable couches that you can sink into. The well laid-out flowering gardens and the surrounding working tea estate is ideal for long morning walks.
Upper Glencairn is in a working tea plantation overlooking the Castlereigh Reservoir and the sacred Adam’s Peak. The distance to Nuwara Eliya is 35 miles and Adam’s Peak is 16 miles away. The journey from Colombo will take about five hours.
