Ella is perhaps best known for being the final destination of one of the most scenic train rides in the world. Over the last decade, this once - sleepy hill town has turned into a lively tourist hub with cafes and bars lining the streets set against a backdrop of forested mountainous ridges. Walk through the main town and you will find tourists posing for photos in front of iconic locations such as the Nine Arch Bridge or hike up to the town’s many panoramic viewpoints for a birds eye view of the lush valleys of Badulla.
There’s no shortage of beautiful places in Ella! Hiking and nature enthusiasts can enjoy climbing Ella rock, Mini Adam’s Peak or exploring the icy waters of Diyaluma or Ravana falls.
