Travel Tips for visiting Ella

Perched at more than 1000 meters above sea level, Ella is a small picturesque town in Sri Lanka located in the province of Badulla. It is also the starting point of many hikes, including the ascent of "Little Adam's Peak" which will offer you a superb panorama of the entire valley once you reach the top. If you don't feel like climbing Adam's Peak, the miniature version is for you! A visit to Ella is an opportunity to learn about the tea culture. The village is surrounded by tea plantations. This is the perfect place to meet the rural population and discover all the subtleties of this particular plant. If you like nature, the Rawana waterfalls will offer you a pleasant moment of relaxation. Located at less than ten minutes from the village by bus and at the edge of the road, you will be able to take advantage of the waterfalls to refresh yourself during a small, very pleasant bath in the middle of the Sri Lankans. The Nine arches bridge is one of the most famous and most photographed places in Sri Lanka. In addition to being very aesthetic, this structure also has an interesting history. It was built with the strong involvement of the British colonial forces in the early 20th century. But before construction could begin, World War I broke out and all the steel that was planned for the construction of the bridge was eventually used in the war effort.But this did not deter the Sri Lankans who, after temporarily halting work, built the bridge without steel with only bricks and cement.
