Train rides

One of the highlights of a trip to Sri Lanka’s hill country is a train ride through the tea plantations, mountains and waterfalls. One can take a train ride up to the bungalow if you wish when coming from your previous destination or you can do a train ride to a nearby location like Nuwara Eliya, Kandy or even Ella during your stay with us. Tickets need to be pre-booked so this is best planned ahead. This train ride is solely recommended for the experience only and not really as a mode of transport from one location to the other due regular train delays.
