It's got all that one expects from a decent adventure. Situated within 2 hours travel from Kandy, and needing around 4hours out there in the Loolkanduta Estate to get the full measure of the experience. There are are three approaches to the location from Kandy. First via Peradeniya towards Galaha. The other is via Ampitiya towards Galaha. And the final one is Rikillagaskada, Deltota route. All of these access routes are beautiful, well maintained and scenic.

It's bit of a tricky climb to do the 5km ride through the Tea Estate, so its better to have your private vehicle ready to ascend over up to 1000 feet in the dirt track of the Tea Estate. You do not need to carry water bottles since there are two mountain springs along the route- one, the bigger one is just below the road where the small lake with an island in the middle.

This water is perfectly drinkable since it springs from the ground only feet away from the little cascade. Better to make the ascent up Kondagala which is about 30 minutes climb of moderate challenge except the uppermost stage where you may need to support those who need assist. View is absolutely riveting with both sides of the massif providing unimpeded views of the hill country for dozens of miles. Rock face is about several hundred meters long, set at an angle of 6o degrees.
Please be careful allowing children to run ahead of you as there few deep crevasses on the rock face.

Its a vertical precipice right through the edge all along the Kondagala Mountain with fascinating views to be enjoyed from a safe distance.
Please bring back your plastic and its best to avoid the mountain top as a point for your meals. There's a fantastic summer house set in side the virgin forest by the Taylors Seat and what better location you need for your snack.

Loolkandura tea estate and kondagala trekking is one of the hidden gems in deltota area off the beaten path of tourists. Nice day out with lot of greenery and tea estates. Trekking is little bit tricky, but at the end, the top of the kondagala is beautiful. not recommended to visit in rainy days as it get misty quickly and the path is slippery.

We travelled to Loolkadura estate from Rikilligaskada. As you go, you will first come across James Taylor's statue. The road which you come to the statue is abit rocky. Can rate it 3/5, not carpeted. Then you come to the entrance of loolkadura gate where there's a 5kms hike to the top. Or, I went in a alto k10 which made me go 5kms in the car itself. Road=1/5. Very bad Sandy and rocky road. I was charged 250 for taking my vehicle upstairs. Many school students started walking 5kms from the bottom. You can also speak to one of the local area tourist agents to go in their bolero jeep, am sure they'd charge you abit more. After all, comfort is not cheap. After you reach the top, you can go James Taylor's ruins, then a 30 min rocks and stone hike to Konda gala. Quite easy. Take water to drink and don't pollute the place! Be careful of the heavy wind on the top so don't go to the corners. The hike to the top is beautiful cz you need to walk with the tea leaf bushes which has paved it's safe way to the top. As you come back, you can visit James Taylor's seat and then leave. Again at the end, 5kms walk back downstairs or go in the vehicle. I'd say, better check your tires and vehicle before you go up the Sandy and rocky road as it might not be safe for an old vehicle. Road is very narrow and scary. Few Tamil tea estate who work and live there can guide you if you want. As you come out, you'll find a lady with a child who sells veg patties and veg dhal wade, a cute family, plz do buy something and help them! Overall, awesome hike to Kondagala via Loolkadura estate. This beauty should be only seen live. No picture can translate the live view of this beautiful place!

We were there last December (2018). This is the first tea plantation of Sri Lanka. It's kind of mini Nuwara eliya. But still so virgin not known by many people. It can be accessible via 4 wheel vehicle. On the top, it has a breathtaking view point just like world's end called as "view point of James taylor's seat". The surrounding was just so gorgeous !!!

A couple of hours from Kandy, this beautiful estate provides a picture of the great Ceylon/Sri Lankan Tea Industry. A very steep climb by taxi and walk 750m to James Taylor's Cottage and views. Tranquil and low-key site. A visit to a working tea factory (Storefield Tea Factory, Gampola) is approx 60 mins away. Taxi Sri Lanka arranged this tour (taxicabsrilanka@gmail.com) from Mountbatten Hotel, Kandy. Cost 9000 SLK for 2 people.

Poorly maintained and impossible to understand a word the guide said. Views and surrounding countryside were outstanding though.

This is a hidden gem...From kandy first you have to go to Delthota...There are enough buses to go...After 2 hour journey(by bus) then you can buy things from Delthota...It is a small town..Near loolecondera estate you can't find enough shops..Then you have to enter to the Hewaheta bus.(there are some buses from Kandy to Hewaheta.but there are less numbers).After 20 miniutes you can reach Looleconders...Then go on foot..it is the most enjoyable thing...After 5km walk you can reach Kondagala...You must hike this rock.....Remember specially public transport travelers,there are no buses from Delthota to Kandy from 6 pm..so you have to manage your time...If you miss the buses you have to hire small lorries to come to Kandy...

Kondagala is situated in Loolkadura estate near Delthota via Galaha road. There is hug flat rock which is easy to climb. View from there is marvelous and there is another view point at Tailors seat.
It is the first tea estate of Sri Lanka and their is ancient well and remains of old bungalow.

This deserves more attention and publicity, specially considering the historical significance of this estate to Ceylon Tea.

According to Google maps, the climb up to the top to see James Taylors Seat is 4.5km and about 1:15 minutes. But in reality it takes much longer - for us it was over 2 hours. If we go there again we would opt to take the vehicle. This is not a free facility, but is certainly worth the insignificant entrance fee.

The view from James Taylors seat is a breathtaking. But to enjoy it properly, you need to avoid rainy or overcast days. Also, note that the weather in this area can change very fast. Unless it is during a dry season, it is advisable to be prepared for rain. It can also get a bit cold at the top of the hill.
