Cycle to Bandarawela 45km

A travel blog entry by j_harry


... hour and a half. Unload the bikes and a few more k's until which reach our lunch spot. Basic, but nice.....and cheap. Today's, 150 rupee each, $1.20. Again much nicer than the Galle Fort Restaurant.....sorry for repeating myself. Lunch done, we are off again. It's flat for the first 8km, then uphill. The landscape is beautiful, with a mixture of forest and tea plantations. The climb starts to hurt. We climb from around 200m to 1041m, with ...

Over the Hills and Far Away

A travel blog entry by bakkepackers


... We had worried that we would get in to Ella pretty late by taking the later train, as we had heard that Sri Lankans measure when trains arrive by either "a quarter of a day late" or "half a day late," but the train arrived in Ella right on time.

In between Kandy and Ella, we were treated to 6.5 hours of stunning hill country vistas as we made our way over the lush green mountains through cloud forests and verdant tea plantations. Dennis ...

Plains, trains and safari jeeps

A travel blog entry by mknox


... place it on something that would effectively lock the track (as same platform was used for both directions) When our train arrived we could sit in doorway with legs hanging out of train.

As its something those of us in western world cannot do there was a ...

The Sunday market

A travel blog entry by charlotterowley


... but the view wasn't as nice this way. There was a group of children sticking up posters onto the tea plants. From what we could gather (it was in mostly Sinhalese script), it was the funeral notice of an old lady - 82. How sad. Back into town around 11.30am and we hopped onto a bus headed for Bandarawela (cost 16p and barely a 5 minute wait). The bus was full of bags of beans and purple coloured parsnip. It's Sunday market day! It took half an hour ...

Ella rock

A travel blog entry by charlotterowley


... forest and up rubble-y paths. By the time we made it to the top we had been walking for 1 hour 45mins. But the views from the rocks at the top were lovely. We were lucky that it wasn't cloudy and could see for miles down the valley. After a while admiring the view (and feeling proud of myself for making it with only 1 rest stop!) we started heading down. Much slippier on all the loose rocks. We also headed a different way down through some tea plantations. By now, ...
