Ella is a beautiful small village in Sri Lanka’s hill country with little more than a handful of shops, hotels and guesthouses, but it has an almost perfect climate and occupies a very scenic vantage point, with views on a fine day stretching right across the South Coast of Sri Lanka.
Ella offers a big variaty of activities like, hiking through the tea plantations, taking a shower in an icecold waterfall or taking a ride on the train through the beautyful mountains.
A traveler writes:
“The view through the Ella gap was probably the best in the entire island. It was quite early and the isolated hills on the plain popped up like little islands in the mist.”
