  Rubber Plantation demo
by freya_heaven

Driving through the Hill Country we stopped next to a rubber plantation, a man who worked there gave us a quick demonstration on how latex is taken from the trees. As you can see the bark is cut in a sloping direction so the Sap can run out. It is then collected in Coconut shells.

I did not realise collecting latex was still so basic!


Hill Country, Not Far From Nuwara Eliya
