You chug with 30km / h through the beautiful mountains with their green forests and tea mountains. Simply an indescribable feeling! An absolute must-do is this train ride on Sri Lanka:
A must on every Sri Lanka trip
MThe unique nature in the highlands of Sri Lanka is experienced first hand and at the same time it is a unique adventure! The train ride is like a magical spell, time stands still, listening to the rattle of the train and the evergreen landscape passes by.
We are from Nanu Oya and get better at Nuwara Eliya until after Ella hazards. Normally the trip should take about 2,5 hours, we needed 4 hours more. But the way is the goal here. You stop at cute little train stations and at the highest point of the ride you're over 2000 meters above sea level.
It is best to stand directly in front of the open wagon doors and feel the wind in your face! Life slows down here, locals get in and out, and flying dealers sell their wares. Sri Lanka at its best!
The train journey costs in the 1. Class about 1000 Rupees for adults.
