Ride the rails to Ella

Instantly recognisable, this Hill Country rail route is arguably the most beautiful in Sri Lanka. Take the iconic 3-4 hour train from Nuwara Eliya and pass through tea country with your feet dangling from the carriage doorways (health and safety has not made it here yet). After crossing the Nine Arch Bridge, most people end their journey in Ella to access the bridge viewpoints on foot.
