When going through any of the hill country itineraries in Sri Lanka one will often come across Ella as a via point. Ella is set apart with some of the most stunning views, you could find in Sri Lanka.
Just 8km from Bandarawela, this way-side town is used as a base for many trekking expeditions to the neighboring countryside.
A taste of the unbelievable landscape of Ella can only be truly enjoyed, if you just walk into the Garden of the Grand Ella Motel (Formerly known as Ella Rest House), which will give you the impression that your standing at the edge of the world, and everything around you seem to fading away at your feet.
Another fine observational point is from the Ambiente Hotel, where its grand doorway, opens out to the mountains, creating a theatrical cinematic likes experience.
