The south eastern Hill Country region surrounding Ella is a great destination for exploring the great outdoors. There are some wonderful walks in Ella and the tea estates that surround the bungalow can be explored on your own or with a butler guide. At our local Finlay’s Tea Factory you can learn about the tea production process on an absorbing guided tea factory tour.
Experiences in Ella range from exploring this stretch of Main Line railway – the Nine Arch Bridge viaduct and the Demodera Loop – to day-tripping to the colonial-era towns of Haputale and Bandarawela. Other things to do in Ella’s verdant surroundings include visiting Sri Lanka’s longest covered wooden bridge, swimming in pristine waterfalls and picnicking in private locations handpicked for their heart stopping scenery.
