Our group of 4 took the train from Nanu Oya to Bandarawela. Nice change from the car. We had reserved seats in first class. Scenery was very interesting with forest, tea plantations and farm land along the way. Luckily we were not in any hurry since we were sidetracked for a while awaiting the passage of another train. No problem!!

Through the tea plantations, rising to the highest station close to Horton Plains, past jungle and more tea plantations across bridges and hugging cliffs to Ella, Quite simply a stunning ride worth every Rupee. Important to find a reliable company to get tickets. Many are kept on the black market resulting in higher than published prices for tickets.

We took the train from Peradeniya (Kandy) to Nanu Oya (Nuwara Eliya) and travelled first class. Tickets were obtained through our tour operator. The journey was just over three hours and we enjoyed spectacular scenery through the hills and tea plantations., seeing the tea pluckers at work and passing numerous waterfalls.

This was a little bit too long train ride. It took almost 10 hours. So it would be better to have one stop on the way. Otherwise scenes were beautiful and our seats on 3rd class were good. There you have enough room to walk around and you can open the window so you can take great pictures. We went to Ella train station 1,5h before departure and there was only 3rd class seats left.
