Top areas in Ella


Ella is a small town in southern Sri Lanka, in what is known as the Hill Country. It’s a favorite among backpackers, who come to Ella to do some mountain climbing and waterfall exploring. Getting into Ella is best done via rail or bus, arriving at Bandarawela Central Bus Stand as the city is just a few stops from the bigger Badulla. Once in Ella, getting around is best on foot, and this being a small town mostly occupied by locals and adventure travelers, this isn’t a bad option for getting around. The biggest attractions in Ella are undoubtedly the waterfalls, known as Ravana Falls, and Ella Rock. Adventurous travelers should not miss an opportunity to climb to the top of Ella’s Rock and enjoy stunning views of this beautiful hill country, and then put on the swimming suits and enjoy the water fun by the waterfall.
