The joy train travels through lush coffee plantations and mountain caverns, offering sweeping views of the valleys that make up Ella.

The train crosses the iconic Nine Arches Bridge, whose dreamy beauty merely adds to the experience of the journey.

Price: Around 120 LKR per ticket 

2. Walk Along the Rail Tracks on the Nine Arches Bridge: One of the most prominent landmarks in Kandy, visiting the Nine Arches Bridge should be a part of every Ella tour package.

A walk through dense bamboo plantations takes one to the Nine Arches, who’s stunning Gothic beauty rises against the backdrop of the bright green cliffs of Ella. However, a rail track passes through the centre of the bridge, and hiking alongside would require one to exercise a fair bit of caution. 
Location: Nine Arches Bridge, Demodara, Ella
