Ella, Sri Lanka

Admire breathtaking views when taking one of the most beautiful train trips in the world from Ella to Nanu Oya

Sri Lanka is a rather small island that is easy to get around with a nice train system connecting big cities. If you are after a short, fantastic train trip in this country, the travels between Ella and Nanu Oya (approximately 8 km outside of Nuwara Eliya) are the best options. Considered to be one of the world’s most beautiful train trips, the ride from Ella to Nanu Oya is very popular among locals and tourists, and it usually gets fully booked on weekends. Though the distance is about 65 km, the train trip may take 2,5 – 3 hours as it has to cross over several mountains and pass some towns stopping to pick up more passengers. But the breathtaking landscapes along the way will make your time on train full of awesome feelings. You will glide through stunning views of green lush tea plantations, mountain ranges, then woodland forests and multiple tunnels. Engaging in a conversation with the friendly locals on board with you is also a joy during your train trip.
