Ella is a beautiful town located in the Badulla district of the Uva Province in Sri Lanka. The pride of Sri Lanka, Ella showcases some fantastic views of the valleys, tea gardens and cafes while offering a pleasant climate throughout the year.
The town is most famous for its iconic nine arches railway bridge which is a fine example of colonial-era construction in Sri Lanka. A trek down the railway track to the bridge is a popular activity, especially around the time the train arrives. There are numerous quaint cafes, walking trails and guest houses nestled in the hills for a peaceful getaway. One can also visit the famous Lipton's Seat where the tea mogul Sir Thomas Lipton would oversee his ever-expanding empire.
Ella is also covered by the dense forests, which are consistently encircled by a mild cloud cover. The town is also famous for its tea plantation, which is one of the primary sources of foreign exchange for the country. This destination offers incredible hiking trails through the woods. A tiny and pleasant place within the Uva province to have some fun and spend some quality time.
