What does the entry ticket cost for Adisham Bungalow, Haputale?

Adisham Bungalow is a tourist site that our guests at GlenMyu Estate visit.

They normally combine seeing the beautiful gardens and the rooms in the house with a visit to Lipton’s Seat and Dambetenne Tea Estate.

Adisham Hall is not old compared to buildings that you will see in Europe.

However, it is very popular with local Sri Lankans as it is a reminder of the country’s Colonial past. It is also in a cooler climate at an elevation of 1,500 metres (5,000 feet) above sea level.

Sri Lankans feel the cold at Adisham Bungalow if they live in one of the warmer parts of the island.

Don’t be surprised if you see Sri Lankans wrapped up in coats scarves and hats and tourists in shorts and t-shirts!
