Badulla marks the southeast extremity of the Hill Country and is a transport gateway to the east coast. It is one of Sri Lanka’s oldest towns, occupied briefly by the Portuguese, who torched it upon leaving. For the British, it was an important social center, but beyond the pretty gardens and clock tower, any vestiges of a past – including a racecourse and cricket club – are lost in Badulla’s typical Sri Lankan bustle. The railway through the Hill Country from Colombo terminates here.
Ella is a small town with a green environment with rich biodiversity that is located in the Badulla district (200 km away from Colombo). Ella has the most comfortable climate where the night is cold and the day is around 28 degrees at most. and there are multiple places in Ella that will take your breath away and make the travel to Sri Lanka worth it.
Little Adam’s Peak
You can call this place the brother of Adams peak since it takes the same shape and half of the size (1141 m) of the Adams peak with a 45 min walk from Ella to the foot of the mountain, takes a 15 -25 min walk to get to the top of Little Adams peak from the foot of the mountain people usually call this a hike but in reality, it’s not an actual hike. After you reach the top of little Adams peak you will be provided with a breathtaking view. If you need a quieter place than the peak of the mountain you can walk down to the next hill ( F.YI there is no path for the next mountain but it’s not dangerous)
If you are up to a hike go try the Ella Rock. Little Adam’s peak is a laugh compared to this one. It takes 2 hours to hike from bottom to top (8km). It can be done with a guide or on your own but please make sure you asked the directions from someone you trust.
Nine Arch Bridge
The wonder of architecture outside the city of Ella The Nine Arch Bridge also called the Bridge in the Sky, is a viaduct bridge in Sri Lanka. It is one of the best examples of colonial-era railway construction in the country. A real wonder that was created by the British architectures and engineers. Takes around the height of 30 m covering the scenario of lush green tea fields.
Learn about the ingredients and create some delicious Sri Lankan food with some spices. Make sure to book in advance because the Ella Spice Garden seems to be full every day
Diyaluma is the 2nd tallest waterfall that you are most likely need one whole day to enjoy the environment and scenarios properly takes an hour drive away from Ella and take a 45 min hike to the top of the waterfall where u can see multiple natural ponds.
This waterfall measures approximately 25 m (82 ft) and Can reach this destination with a 10 min drive and very easy to access this waterfall since its right next to the road with a height and if you’re lucky you might get the chance to dip yourself in Ravana falls water
