Offering the best of both worlds – Sri Lanka’s abundant vegetation and a pleasant cool climate, Ella presents travelers many ways to experience the amazing flora and fauna of Sri Lanka’s Hill Country. Surrounded by rolling hills and tea plantations, there are some great walks that can be done from Ella as well as many adrenalines fuelled activities, such as canoeing and rock climbing.
