Day 1Airport / Nuwara Eliya

Welcome at Airport by Our representative and transfer to Nuwara Eliya. Arrive and check in to a Hotel in Nuwara Eliya. Rest of the day relax at Hotel after a long journey. 

Nuwara Eliya

Nuwara Eliya is a beautiful mountain station in Sri Lanka known for its incredible scenery and abundant tea plantations. Sometimes referred to as “Little England’, the city is well-kept and neat and features British-style red-brick walls, mock-Tudor half-timbering and a very English country club. The surrounding areas offer breathtaking views of valleys, meadows, mountains and greenery, and most importantly a wonderful break from the heat and humidity of the coast. Tea Estates, waterfalls, and mountains complete the picture. Visitors can take guided tours of the tea plantations, meander through the roses, take a picturesque walk to the ‘Lovers’ Leap’ waterfall, and meander through orchids and giant cypresses at the Hakgala Gardens. Other highlights include the Seetha Amman and Nuwara Eliya Buddhist Temples and the Galway’s Land National Park.

Overnight stay in Nuwara Eliya.

Day 2Nuwara Eliya

Start sightseeing Nuwara Eliya by visiting the old brick post office, country house-like hill club and its interesting interior, the 18-hole golf course, race course, Gregory Lake, Victoria Park, and the Botanical gardens in Hakgala, established in 1861. Highlights include the central pond, lower flower garden, rose garden, glass house, bulb garden, upper flower garden, and their folklores. There is a collection of flowers such as Lilium, Watsonia, Gladiolus, Agapanthus, and Zephyranthes. The Badulla tree which can be found here is said to have valuable medicinal properties. This garden is inhabited by many species of birds such as; Wood Pigeons, Southern Crow Pheasants, Layard’s Woodpeckers, Fantail Warblers, Yellow Fronted Barbertons, and Tickell’s Flowerpecker.

Visit the “Sita Amman Kovil”, a quaint little Kovil, with the statues of Rama, Sita, Hanuman, Lakshmana, and Sugriva, is supposed to be the only Kovil in the entire world dedicated to Sita. The stream by the side of the temple is a famous spot as it is said to have once been the bathing place of Sita. 

Overnight stay in Nuwara Eliya.     

Day 3Nuwara Eliya / Ella

Breakfast at Hotel, proceed to Nanu Oya Railway Stationed to board the train to Ella. (Train tickets strictly subject to availability).

 

The train journey is very pleasant because of the beautiful surroundings of mountains, countryside, rice fields, and very cool climate. You will be passing the Nine Arch Bridge in Ella which is on the Demodara loop and spans across 91 meters at a height of 24 meters. The beautiful nine arches are a very picturesque spot as it is located in a dense jungle and agricultural setting. Behind the railway, a forest blooms, and below, tea leaves are being cultivated. 

Arrive at Ella Railway Station and you will be met at the Station by our Chauffeur guide and transfer to Hotel in Ella.

Resting on the southern edge of Sri Lanka’s picturesque Hill Country, the small, sleepy village of Ella is known for its exceptional natural scenery, its wonderfully tranquil atmosphere, and its pleasantly moderate climate. This popular backpacker hub has become a well-established, must-see tourist destination and an ideal base for travelers exploring the idyllic surrounding countryside cloaked in tea plantations and lush forest. With only a handful of essential stores and tourist facilities, Ella has managed to retain its rural charm and visitors will find a single street winding its way down the hillside past a few quaint cafés, guesthouses, and cottages enclosed in neat, flower-filled gardens. At the edge of the escarpment, you will find a classic view past the renowned Ella Rock on the right and through a cleft in the hills – the so-called Ella Gap – to the plains far below.

Rest of the day enjoy the surrounding of Ella.

Day 4Ella site visits

Little Adam’s peak of Ella- Little Adam’s peak is also known as ‘Punchi Sri Pada’ locally. It is 1141 m in height. It is figured in Pyramid Shape Mountain which stands opposite of the Ella rock. Walk through lush green tea plantations, waterfalls, and paddy fields while enjoying the scenery. It will take around 35-45 minutes to reach the top of the mountain on a zig-zag path.

Walk along the 9 Arch Bridge and catch the train – The Nine Arch Bridge in Ella is on the Demodara loop and spans 91 meters at a height of 24 meters. The beautiful nine arches make it a very picturesque spot especially as it is located in a dense jungle and agricultural setting. Behind the railway, a forest is booming, and below, tea leaves are being cultivated. The walk along train tracks is very pleasant, with beautiful surroundings, mountains, countryside, rice fields, and a very cool climate.

The Dhowa Rock Temple- This date back over 2000 years and is a protected heritage site and a hidden gem in the surroundings of Ella. It is a partially finished standing statue of Buddha on a direct rock with a shrine of beautiful frescoes of the Kandy era.  It is considered a cave shrine formed in the era of king Walagamba and it was known as the “Kumbalthissa Ariyakara” shrine in the past.

The Ella rock- Ella rock lies just a little further from Little Adam’s peak. Once reached the top, you will be faced with stunning views of the surrounding landscape. This includes views of Little Adam’s Peak and a clear view of the Ella Gap. The Ella Gap is a space between the mountains as an arrow flies; that gives a fantastic view all the way to the southern coast.
