1. Visit the Nine Arch Bridge

De Nine Arch Bridge, one of the most impressive sights in Ella. It is not only an impressive structure, but also a place where you can take cool photos from different angles. The Nine Arch Bridge, also called Demodara Nine Arch Bridge, is built of bricks and cement and is no less than 91 meters long and 24 meters high. The name says it all, the bridge (viaduct) consists of nine arches that give the bridge a unique appearance. The bridge was built in the colonial era by a local Ceylonese builder in collaboration with British engineers. It is the perfect place to photograph the Sri Lankan train.

2. Walk along the track over the bridge

Besides being able to admire the bridge from below and from the side, you can also choose to walk across it. If you follow the track, you will soon notice that it has been laid out in the middle of nature. Watch out for the train that can pass by.

3. Climb Little Adams Peak

If you're in Ella, you really shouldn't miss Little Adams Peak. We really think Little Adams Peak is an attraction in Ella that you should be able to check off your list.
