The Past Story of the Liptons Seat

During the period when Sri Lanka was a colony, a large number of foreign planters came to Sri Lanka.  They mainly targeted mountainous areas.  Accordingly, they used these areas extensively for the tea industry.  Sir Thomas Lipton is one of the most famous planters who came to Sri Lanka.  He started his plantation industry mainly based in the Haputale area.  It is said that during his stay in this area he used a seat on a mountain top to see the beauty of the environment.  That seat is called Lipton’s Seat.  Many tourists still visit this place from there to enjoy the beauty of the environment.
