The hill village of Ella sits amongst some of Sri Lanka's most spectacular scenery. It is surrounded by tea plantations, beyond which are waterfalls, viewpoints, richly biodiverse cloudforest, all of which can be enjoyed at the cooler climes of the hill country. This is a great area for hiking, be it a gentle stroll or a full on hike - just walking to the end of the town gets you magnificent views down through the Ella Gap to the plains beyond! The village has an English country vibe but is entirely Sri Lankan in its relaxed atmosphere. One of the world's most beautiful train journeys, you can travel between Kandy and Ella, chugging through the hills carpeted in tea plantations and lush forest. This journey takes around 7 hours, but is well worth it.
