Ella is a small village in the highlands of Sri Lanka which is filled with tea estates, mountains, waterfalls and of course with some good air to breathe.
Lots of people make Ella as one of their must-visit destinations just to witness the breathtaking views it creates. It is a dream place for many trekkers with some of the best hikes the Island provides. This hidden village got vastly popular among tourists lately.
Built in 1921, the viaduct bridge just outside the Ella town, aptly named the ‘Nine Arch Bridge’ is an engineering marvel, as it is made solely from stone. The bridge can be visited through a number of hiking routes that vary in certain difficulties, providing you and your friends a great adventurous opportunity.
Study the local train timetable before you head out, so that you can make it in time to watch the train chug along the rustic bridge, providing the perfect photo opportunity!
Ella is certainly a place with plenty of things to do which will keep you busy and happy.
If you are looking for a place to unwind from your busy lifestyle and to spend some peaceful, relaxed time with the nature, this is the place and you will leave Ella with some fond memories to last a life time!
