Full description
Discover the beauty of Ella on this half day tour. Your personal guide will take you to the famous Nine Arch Bridge before you witness the stunning views of Ella's natural beauty from Little Adam's Peak. Stroll along the unique attraction of the Nine Arch Bridge railway, spanning 91 meters alongside dense jungle and agricultural settings. Stop for photos of the nine arches. With the forest booming behind the railway and the tea leaves cultivated below from the plantations, the beautiful bridge stands out from the epic scenery as a picturesque masterpiece. The bridge is built entirely from rocks and bricks, without metal or steel. Next, your guide will take you on a small hike to Little Adam's Peak to see the greenery of Ella, surrounded by tea fields and rural beauty. The moderate trail winds through tea plantations, where you may see locals working and picking the tea leaves.

We were doing a little hiking to Little Adam's Peak, for me it was very easy to manage. The view was really nice, but the weather was not perfect 100 %, because a part was sunny, but also a bit misty, but I guess it is always something similar, so don't hope for "the perfect instagram picture". :D There is also a zipline, what you can try it, I guess it's fun :) (it is not included in this price) The Nine Arch bridge is amazing itself, don't skip it, if you are in Ella, Sri Lanka. We were also waiting for "the old, red train", it was cool to see it. My tour guide came to pick me up with his tuk-tuk, it was very comfortable and also a nice experience. He was very nice and kind with me during the day. This trip is defintitely worth for money.

Dino war ein super Guide. Bei den Spaziergängen hat er mir Pflanzen, Tiere u vieles mehr erklärt. Und zusätzlich hatte er immer kleine Überraschungen parat: Teepause, Cookis u weitere kleine Überraschungen… Ausserdem hatten wir absolut Glück bei den Highlights: gleich 2 Züge konnten wir bestaunen u die Sicht war auch fantastisch!!!
