A train ride from Kandy to Ella is one of the best things to do while you’re holidaying at a hotel in Kandy Sri Lanka. So, don’t miss out on this captivating experience, which will surely provide you with memories to last a lifetime.
You can purchase train tickets directly at the station, pre-book through your hotel, or by visiting the station the day before during your stay at a Kandy hotel such as Hunas Falls Hotel Kandy. It would be enough arriving at the station on the day of your trip unless you specifically require first-class tickets.
During the Journey…
Once the train begins the journey, you can walk around the carriages, buy some refreshments at the food stands, or even purchase some snacks from local vendors who pass from one carriage to the other.
The train winds through mountains passing through lush green mountains draped in tea plantations – the scenery continues to surprise you throughout the journey, alternating with enchanting woodlands and eye-candy green views.
When Going Through Tunnels
The train also passes through multiple tunnels and many kids (sometimes adults join, too) scream for fun until the train emerges from the other end of the tunnel.
