Delight in a 2-day tour encompassing the very best that Ella has to offer. Admire spectacular mountain scenery, and experience traditional Sri Lankan rural life as you discover the magic and charm of this beautiful region. Begin your tour with hotel pickup on the first day, and explore the wonders of Ella, a village paradise in the central highlands of Sri Lanka, with a local, knowledgeable guide. Take in amazing panoramic views as you hike to the top of Ella Rock, passing luscious tea plantations and tranquil woodlands on the way. Next, stroll along the unique Nine Arch Bridge railway and stop to take picturesque photos of this architectural masterpiece. Marvel at the epic scenery of forests and tea leaf cultivation, before resting and relaxing over lunch in a local restaurant. After lunch, take a small hike with your guide to Little Adam's Peak and further enjoy the rural beauty. Wind through tea plantations, and pass multiple platforms, rocks, and viewpoints that are perfect for photos. See the view get more and more spectacular as you walk along the ridge to the summit, before descending and returning to your local accommodation in the evening. On the second day, savor a truly off-the-beaten-path experience in an authentic local village. Get a taste for typical rural life in Sri Lanka, and interact with the local village community to understand more about their daily lives. Try your hand at traditional Chena cultivation, an agricultural practice that dates back some 5000 years in Sri Lanka, and prepare your own lunch using supplies from wild Chena. Then, relax on a gentle canoe ride around the lake in Etili village, and wonder at the surrounding nature, birds, and photographic scenery. Finally, take a thrilling ride through the village on an amphibious Landmaster vehicle, before returning to your accommodation once again.
