Once we had our fill of Kandy we made our way to Ella, a chill tourist town that houses hikes like Little Adam’s Peak and Ella’s Rock. We spent two days in the city, then spent a few days in the mountains sleeping in tents. This was also the first city where we found a decent cup of coffee, as tea is more popular here. While you’re in Ella, you have the option to take a tour of a tea factory, which is quite informative and interesting. At the end, you’ll even be able to try the black teas they export. We recommend taking a train from Kandy to Ella. It’s about a 6-7 hour ride through the lush and beautiful greenery of Sri Lanka. Most people spend their entire trip sitting at the doors looking out to the neverending hills.
