DAY 6

Cosmopolitan (UK) - - Play -

Head fur­ther up coun­try to Tay­lors Hill, orig­i­nally built as a Bri­tish tea plan­ta­tion owner’s bun­ga­low, but now an in­ti­mate five-bed­room ho­tel. There’s a swim­ming

pool, ten­nis court, snooker room and a cro­quet lawn, edged with wrought iron ta­bles wait­ing to be laid out with English af­ter­noon teas. From here, ask the ho­tel to or­gan­ise a tuk-tuk tour of Loole­con­dera Tea Fac­tory. This hill coun­try is some of the most In­sta­grammable scenery on earth. Pea-green plan­ta­tions are dot­ted with nim­ble-fin­gered women dressed in saris the colours of Qual­ity Street. Rare ea­gles soar above while leop­ards lay low in the un­der­growth.
