If you have exploration on your mind, there are many attractions in and around the Weir House to interest and inspire you. 

The Weir House Vicinity
The Fields BeckonThe Weir House has recently ventured into coffee and pepper cultivation and we are very enthusiastic about our new project. The pepper plant has a long history in Sri Lanka - while British colonisers first introduced coffee to the Island in the 1700s. Our resident manager will be happy to walk you through our plantation - and provide you with an overview of the histories and the methods of cultivation of the two crops.
A River Runs Through It The Raja Ela, a tributary of Sri Lanka's longest river, the Mahaweli flows past our property. Walk by the river - and then past an anicut that is rumoured to have first been built by our ancient kings. This is a lovely tree-shaded walk, which will provide you with a glimpse of village life in Sri Lanka.
Beyond 'The Weir'
The Wild Waters' Call
For many years Kitulgala's claim to fame was that it was the location for the filming of the multiple Oscar winner - The Bridge on the River Kwai. Today the town is better known as a destination for white water rafters. Riding the rapids on the Kelani River, past spectacular forest scenery makes for a morning well spent.
Magical Gardens and Majestic Trees
Royal Botanical Gardens, Peradeniya
The Peradeniya Gardens were once the playground of ancient royalty. Converted into Botanical Gardens in 1892 by British colonists, the Gardens are considered to be one of the best in Asia, with over 10,000 plants and 4000 labelled species. The Gardens contain avenues of statuesque palms and beautiful cannonball trees, orchid houses and several rare species of trees.
The Last Royal Bastion
Kandy is famed for the Dalada Maligawa - the ancient royal palace that now houses the sacred tooth relic of the Lord Buddha. The Kandy Perahera, is held each year in August, and is a colourful spectacle of adorned elephants, fire dancers and traditional drummers.
Dawn at the Summit
Adam's Peak
Adam's Peak is a conspicuous, statuesque, triangular shape that announces its presence amidst its less well-proportioned mountain counterparts. The Peak is famous for its giant footprint, which is considered sacred by Buddhists, Hindus, Muslims and Christians alike. Climbing season commences in December and ends in May. The four-hour hike begins in the dead of night - in time to reach the summit to watch the first rays of sunlight pierce through the darkness to cast a perfect shadow of the mountain on the plains below.
Wending through the tea country
Nuwara Eliya
Nuwara Eliya is fondly known as Little England - for its lovely Scottish style cottages and manicured gardens. For those who like a spot of golf while on holiday, Nuwara Eliya's golf course is considered one of the finest in Asia. The drive up to Nuwara Eliya from the Weir House is spectacular as you meander past riverine forests, before breaking into the tea country - where hill-upon-hill is blanketed in brilliant green tea bushes.
