Ella is a place blessed with some of the most beautiful and breathtaking views, you could find in Sri Lanka. Located 230km from Sri Lankas Capital City Colombo & 85km from Mattala International Airport, this small town is used as a base for plenty of trekking expeditions to the surrounding countryside.
The climate throughout most of the year is typical of the high Hill Country, with a hot sun by midday, but a moderate air temperature. It will often rain in the afternoon, but only for an hour or so. A sweatshirt, or light jacket is needed at night. In December it can rain a lot!
It's basically a nicely relaxing base for exploring the surrounding country.
Ella offers a big variaty of activities like, hiking through the tea plantations, taking a shower in an icecold waterfall or taking a ride on the train through the beautyful mountains.
