Full description
Enjoy the convenience of being picked from your accommodations in either Ella, Bandarawella, Haputale, or Wellawaya via tuk-tuk. Begin your tour with an early morning hike to the famous cliff, Ella Rock. Along the way, you’ll journey through tranquil woodlands and tea plantations. Walk alongside the iconic Sri Lankan railroad. Once you’ve reached Ella Rock, you’ll be able to enjoy amazing panoramic views. Hike down from Ella Rock to Nine Arches Bridge, a picturesque bridge which connects the Ella and Demodara railway stations. The bridge consists of 9 arches, which offer a harmonious sense of geometry against the lush green growth of the countryside. The bridge is made exclusively from rock, brick, and cement, and doesn’t use any steel. Stand underneath the bridge and look out into the beautiful “9 skies” framed by the 9 arches. Walk across the bridge and learn about its history from your knowledgable guide as you take in the surroundings. Sit down for lunch at a local restaurant before going for an afternoon hike to Little Adam’s Peak, Ella’s most well-known attraction. Enjoy an easy and gradual climb to the peak. Once there, take in a spectacular view of the Ella Gap. Walk through lush green tea plantations and paddy fields. See local people plucking and collecting tea leaves. Gaze over the valley into the island’s central highlands. Take a refreshing swig of complimentary bottled water. Your tour ends as you are returned to your hotel via tuk-tuk.

I participated alone on that day, but I enjoyed it very much throughout the tour! The guide speaks fluent English. I wasn't good at English, and sometimes I had difficulty communicating. Was. Hiking on the mountain path was a bit difficult, but I could see the spectacular scenery and meet many memorable scenes. It was good that the guide took a lot of photos. Ceylon tea and coconut biscuit which I drank in a coconut shell tea cup prepared by the guide on the rocky place with a superb view were very delicious.

Our driver Sanju was extremely efficient and friendly and we would not have been able to cover all three sites without his expert navigation. He went out of his way to check what time the train passed along the Nine Arch Bridge so we could get there on time and experience the moment. We had lunch at a local restaurant which was absolutely delicious (we were given the choice to order any dish off their menu).

Engaged this tour package and was assigned a driver cum tour guide, Mr Sanju, who was very experienced and brought us around. He showed us some of the other spots during the tour as well. He bought me to a good spot to take my photo of the train too. Had a great time with him as a guide! Thank you!
