The bungalow set amidst the misty hills

The Viharagala Estate Bungalow, situated within 10 minutes drive from Beragala in Haputale, is a haven for the discerning traveller who wishes to enjoy the tranquillity of cool, tea-clad hills.

The bungalow is maintained and run in the tradition of the old-fashioned estate bungalow, providing an entirely novel experience to the traveller. The main bungalow comprises five rooms and four bathrooms, maintained in the estate bungalow style.

The bungalow has a well-appointed pantry and a kitchen, and the staff is superbly trained the traditional way, to cater to every whim of the guest.

The kitchen, equipped with every modern convenience, can cater to every gastronomic need of the guest, be it European, Chinese, Indian or Sri Lankan traditional.

The Pemberly Study Centre, which was a research centre until recently for students and educationalists, has now been renovated and converted to another bungalow, which is also on offer to visitors. Pemberly has seven bedrooms with attached bathrooms, a spacious dining room and a pantry equipped with all the modern conveniences.

As the Viharagala Estate Bungalow is surrounded by a flower garden consisting mainly of roses, it is a haven for birds. The guest is softly awoken in the morning by the sweet trill of birds, which are attracted to the flowers. The bungalow and its' surroundings are a bird watcher's paradise. The Viharagala Estate Bungalow is situated in close proximity to the Bambarakanda and Diyaluma water falls. The Sillery family established the Viharagala Estate in 1861.

The bungalow bookings are handled by C and H Travels, Colombo, now.
