      Stop At: Nine Arches Bridge, Ella Sri Lanka
      This 30-metre high, 90-metre long viaduct with dramatic high arches is a beautiful piece of architecture that enhances its setting as it crosses a narrow gorge between Ella and Demodara railway stations. Close by, the Demodara loop is also quite something, as the train coming from up-country enters a tunnel underneath Demodara rail station and then spirals around to cope with the vertical distance between two adjacent hills. This bridge, which is almost 100 years old, has been built with blocks of stone and cement without any strengthening iron or concrete. This setting, beloved by thousands of Instagram accounts, somehow conveys the relaxed vibe that makes Sri Lanka one of the most treasured holiday destinations in the world.

      Stop At: Ravana's Cave, Wellawaya road Nature Exploration and conservation Society ,#37/2,kekunahena,opatha,Galle, Ella 90090 Sri Lanka
      Linked to King Ravana, of the legendary Indian epic Ramayana, Ravana Cave is a prominent spectacle in Ella. According to legends, the Demon King is said to have abducted the Indian Princess Sita and concealed her in the cave. Excavations within this historical cave revealed evidence of human habitation dating back to 20,000 BC. The cave lies 1, 370 meters (4, 490 ft) above sea level, and measures 50 ft wide, 150 ft long and 60ft high. The cave is also believed to be connected to the cave in Dowa Rock Temple in Badulla. The network of caves and tunnels are all man made, connected to all the important cities and served as swift secret passage ways through the mountains. The cave resides behind the 25 meter cascade, Ravana Falls (Ravana Ella). The marvelous waterfall is one of the widest in Sri Lanka, especially during the rainy season. It is said that Princess Sita bathed in a pool of water gathered by the waterfall.

      Stop At: Ravana Ella Falls, Ella-Wellawaya Road, Ella 90090 Sri Lanka
      The magnificent Rawana falls is a beautiful waterfall, which plunges 90 metres over a few rock faces and the main road passes right over it via a small bridge. Also known as Bambaragala falls, Rawana falls is named after the mythical king Rawana who allegedly held captive a princess named Sita from a nearby kingdom. With fantastic views that look out to the surrounding valleys and mountains – it is definitely worth the visit. Swimming in the base pool is also very refreshing and an experience like no other!

      Stop At: Dowa Rajamaha Viharaya දෝව රජමහා විහාරය, A16, Bandarawela 90122, Sri Lanka
      Once a sanctuary to a defiant king of Sri Lanka, the Dowa Raja Maha Viharaya is one of the more mysterious and legendary temples in the hill country of the Paradise Isle. Its history stretching all the way back to the 1st Century BC, the temple’s unique Mahayana sculpture and murals tell an intriguing story of the previous lives of the Lord Buddha. Boasting of artifacts still preserved from 2000 years ago, the ancient temple is an idyllic location for the history enthuse. The temple was known as the Kumbaltissa Ariyagala Vehera, however, it was subsequently changed to ‘Dowa’, in honour of the chief priest who took the king in.
