          Inconvenient location

          by (27 reviews) , Australia Flag of Australia

          This hotel is not centrally located It is inconveniently placed to get in and out of the village (Ella). While you might say it's only 600 metres, it is all uphill; and a very steep uphill at that. While the rooms were spacious, there was no way to communicate with reception except to go up and down the stairs to speak to reception face-to-face. Breakfast was monotonous and the evening meal was ordinary. Having said all that, the view from the hotel was to die for as it was positioned that you virtually looked straight down Ella Gap (the valley between the mountains).

          We set off at 8.20am to walk the 6.5 kms along the railway track from Ella to Demodara where, if we made it in time, we would catch the train back to Ella.

          Just after stepping onto the train tracks there was a sign telling us that walking along the tracks is prohibited. Interestingly, the guide books and hotel suggest walking the line and …

          ... through 8ft high crops for about 5 minutes and then through jungle land that the farmer was showing us through, only to then start climbing (I mean really climbing) up a mountain.... If the cobras didn't kill me, this climbing was definitely going to. After about 20 minutes of climbing, we got to a point where there was a herd of cows - yes, cows, how lovely - on the middle of this mountain, and they were literally sliding down toward us. Sheer panic set in. The farmer then ...

          ... as many tourists as locals during my stay. This might be a suitable moment to comment on my fellow travellers. As I am here during the off-season it has not at any point felt over-run. Mostly I would say, people travel independently, many with their own driver for the entire trip, which was not something I fancied. Having witnessed some astonishingly stilted lunch and dinner conversations with drivers at adjoining tables ('So, you have never left ...

          ... looking at we can see why!
          After a few pics we headed back into Ella and over to the train station to book our train tickets in the observation carriage tomorrow and cheekily got the last 2 tickets while the people in the queue behind us paid double for non-observation.......hopefully the recommendation of the observation carriage will be well worth it and we will have some fantastic views tomorrow!!

          ... for my friend but his mood soon sours as we see the storm clouds crest the adjacent mountain and we are no where near the top. It becomes a mad dash to make it up before we get drenched again. Even though we brought the ponchos we left them locked in the scooter. We reach the top, get a few great photos, check out the prayer flags and rush down with just enough time to scoop out the ponchos.

          With most of the day still ahead we ride through ...
