After spending weeks along the coast of Sri Lanka, enjoying some of the best beaches the country has to offer, we decided to escape the heat and head inland up to the mountains of Sri Lanka, to the Hill Country. We choose to go to Ella, a lovely sleepy hill town!

Ella is a peaceful small village in the middle of a beautiful green countryside, with spectacular views! It is nestled in a valley, surrounded by high mountains, some of them higher than 2000 m.

When you picture Sri Lanka, golden soft beaches probably pops up before your eyes. But this beautiful island can also offer a totally different side, one of misty green lush landscape. It’s a side with a blanket of green tea bushes as far as your eyes can see, divided by waterfalls and small mountain villages. It’s a side where you can go hiking above 2000 m, walk to the end of the world, or in the footsteps of Adam. Welcome to Sri Lanka`s Hill Country!

The world`s most beautiful train trip ella kandy

Taking the train is the most comfortable way to travel in my opinion. You can walk around whenever you want, go to the toilet, have some food, meet other travelers and locals, read, listen to music, relax and watch the landscape go peacefully by. Taking the train is a great way to see Sri Lanka! It is also cheap and safe! The train trip from Ella to Kandy, in Sri Lanka, is supposed to be one of the most scenic and beautiful journeys in the world. We totally agree!
