If your goal is to see Sri Lanka’s jaw-dropping natural beauty, there’s no better way to achieve it than by train! Often called “the world’s most beautiful train journey,” the trip from Ella to Kandy passes lush green jungles and traditional tea plantations while leisurely passing through some of the most stunning views Sri Lanka has to offer.
The trip from Ella to Kandy is about seven hours, but that doesn’t mean you need to take it all at once! Consider stopping at a tea plantation along the way. Not only will you be able to meet local tea farmers, you can help with the harvest, and learn all about the production of this drink loved around the world.
Once you’re fully refreshed, continue on to Kandy, where you can see more of incredible Sri Lanka from a comfortable window seat. Of course, that’s not your only option! Daring travellers can opt to dangle from the doors of this slow-moving train and get up close and personal with the fresh air and vibrant green jungles. Whichever you choose, you’re sure to have an unforgettable experience the entire way from Ella to Kandy!
If you can’t resist the allure of this train ride — or of Sri Lanka in general! — for any longer, it might be time to plan an adventure of your own. No matter what you decide to do in this magical country, the train journey from Ella to Kandy is a must. Don’t believe us? You must not have been paying attention.
