A mountainous area and elevation is 1,100 m a.s.l., 130km from Colombo. Environment is cool, windy and low humid. Used for tea plantation by the British people until late 19th century. After that, they abandoned the area because all the planters moved back to UK. Still some plantations can be seen and still as majority, south Indian Tamil people are living here. Agriculture, dairy farming and the tea plantation are the main incomes of the community.

Eight years ago, all the funds are terminated suddenly then most of the activities are collapsed. After that another group had taken the responsibility to development the collapsed project. Again, its management has change and all the activities stopped by new management. Covid pandemic hit very badly and workers have to stay at home.
