Dambatenne Tea factory is another place that you can visit if you are staying some days in Ella.
Story is connected with the famous Lipton Seat viewpoint as it was built by same person, the Scottish tea baron Sir Thomas Lipton in 1890. Currently well known as Lipton tea manufacturers.
The factory is set 11km outside of Haputale, with buses running every half hour to Dambatenne. There are no direct rail or bus links to the factory, so your best bet is to get to local bus over to Dambatenne and walk from there. Tuk tuks are also available.
