Ginigathena at the westen edge of Nuwara Eliya District is an attractive gateway to Sri Lanka’s highlands. It’s situated 50 km south of Kandy, 20 km east of Kitulgala, 40 km north of Adam’s Peak, and 60 km west of Nuwara Eliya. Ginigathen is the starting point of a hiking route to Aberdeen Falls. So it also makes sense to stay 2 or three nights at this cool place for sightseeing in the immediate surrounding
Team Sightseeinglanka recommends Wewaltalawa Estate Bungalow. The distance of this Colonial Bungalow from Ginigathena is 6.5 km. Wewaltalawa Estate Bungalow is located in an elevation of 2800 ft above sea level in the eastern valley of Watawala.
