Ella’s Hidden Wonders – Nine Arch Bridge

Perched at 3100m above sea level within the rugged peaks of the Central Highlands, the Nine Arches Bridge showcases incredible architectural resilience. Crafted entirely from brick, rock, and cement, without a single piece of steel, this bridge has stood steadfast since its construction in 1921. A 30-meter-high marvel, the Demodara Nine Arch Bridge is a highlight in Ella. A 30-minute jungle walk leads to this hidden gem nestled amidst lush tea fields. Walking on the bridge is allowed, adding to the charm of this place. Rated as one of the world’s best train tours, the train journey through Sri Lanka’s highlands is a splendid experience, and the magnificent Nine Arch Bridge enhances its allure. Witnessing the train passing over the bridge offers a breathtaking view that captures the essence of this engineering marvel.

Captivating Little Adams Peak

Nestled in the stunning region of Ella, Sri Lanka, renowned for its striking mountain ranges, tea plantations, waterfalls, and trails, Little Adams Peak offers a mesmerizing hiking experience. Easily accessible and featuring a sensational view, it’s a must-visit in Ella. The ascent is gentle and starts with a stroll through sloping tea fields, followed by a short climb up winding steps to the peak. From there, the panoramic vista encompasses Ella Rock, tea plantations, and the Ella gap leading to southern valleys. On clear days, the view stretches to the south coast and the glimmering ocean. The trail takes 20-40 minutes one way and traverses through picturesque tea plantations.

Majestic Ravana Falls

Ella boasts another enchanting site, the Ravana Falls, one of the country’s widest waterfalls. About 25 meters in height, these falls cascade from an oval-shaped concave rock outcrop. They exhibit a remarkable transformation during the wet season, resembling an areca flower with petals. The falls are part of the Ravana Ella Wildlife Sanctuary and are situated 6 km away from Ella Railway Station. Legends link these falls to the mythical king Ravana from the Ramayana epic, suggesting that he hid Princess Sita in the caves behind the waterfall. This once-thickly forested area harbors tales of adventure and intrigue.

Scenic Short Train Journey
