A little further is Ella, known for its iconic nine arches railway bridge that is the draw of the town. The small cafés, colonial buildings and lush trails can be found around the dense forests that cover Ella. Do remember to visit Lipton’s Seat from where the tea-mogul Sir Thomas Lipton grew his empire.

In the western region of the country, Kitugala is an adventurer’s delight. The town is home to a network of caves called the Belilena Caves; the town is also popular for mountain biking, waterfall abseiling, whitewater rafting in the Kelani River and camping under clear, starry skies.


Whatever you seek, the hills of Sri Lanka have all the answers and are a great escape.
