It is another awe-inspiring biodiversity hotspot. The Central Highlands rise to 2500 meters above sea level. The property comprises the Peak Wilderness Protected Area, Horton Plains National Park, and the Knuckles Conservation Forest. Nuwara Eliya is considered the capital city of the Central Highlands.
