From Nuwara Eliya to Ella
The train ride from Nuwara Eliya to Ella is definitively a must do while being in Sri Lanka. Through the highlands the train winds through a beautiful scenery filled with tea plantations. By the way: The tea is super delicious – give it a try! Ella itself is a small place with many restaurants. The locals mainly live from tourism. Start your climb to Mini Adam's Peak or Ella Rock from here. The way up to Ella Rock leads you along train tracks, several tea plantations, a waterfall and finally a steep ascent – however, the view is definitely worth it.
