Sri Lanka Scenic Train Route

The scenic train through Sri Lanka takes visitors through countless breath-taking sights of verdant plantations, green hillsides, and lush plains. This is a must-try experience to immerse yourself in the natural beauty of this beautiful destination.

The 5-hour train ride from Kandy to Ella is one of the most scenic train journeys in the world. The views on both sides of the rail are epic. The trail winds through the mountains overlooking farms and villages and of course vast tea plantations. The scenery changes dramatically throughout the trip. At times, you will look out to rolling green hills than the next minute you are in the middle of a forest.

The train also passes through multiple tunnels. You will be filled with joy and hope while sitting in the doorway and yelling as loud as possible when the train enters into the dark of the tunnel.

The Kandy to Ella Train is just one of Sri Lanka’s many magnificent train routes. Contact Us to find out more scenic routes and to add this excursion to your itinerary.
