The fascinating train route
Reached the station of Nanu Oya, a few minutes from Nuwara Eliya (8 km), we can mount on the train carriage in Ella.
The railway network in Sri Lanka was initially introduced by the British colonial government in 1864,
mainly for transporting tea (and coffee)
from the hilly region in places like Nuwara Eliya to the capital, Colombo.
Since the advent of road travel, Sri Lanka’s rail network has declined sharply since the 1970s.
Recently, the Sri Lankan government launched a 10-year rail development strategy investment program to empower and rekindle this sector – a blessing for what we found to be one of the most spectacular train journeys you have ever undertaken.
The trip, lasting 2/3 hours, will take you, literally, through the clouds, in an unforgettable panorama of tea plantations, eucalyptus woods, local villages where low clouds add to this beautiful scenery.
Once you arrive at the station of Ella, depending on the program of your itinerary, you can make several treks surrounded by mountainous peaks, waterfalls and beautiful panoramas.
I remind you that we are at high altitudes, so I advise you to dress in comfortable and warm clothing.
Sri Lanka is indeed the perfect place for children and for people who like animals and nature.
This country is incredibly green.
It is impossible not to find elephant herds on safari or even on the same road traveling.
It is also very easy to see leopards, macaques and other types of monkeys, giant squirrels, jackals, etc. etc
Furthermore, walking with children and adults through the Peradeniya Botanical Garden is a delight. Along with the giant trees and millions of plants, we will also find monkeys and other animals in this immense place.
