About the neighbourhood
Ella is a beautiful small sleepy town on the southern edge of Sri Lanka's Hill Country. It's situated in the middle of beautiful countryside, with small vegetable plots in the valleys, tea plantations on the hill slopes and forests on the tops.

A sweatshirt, or light jacket is needed at night. In December it can rain a lot and the temperature can be close to 16 degrees. There's not much to do in Ella itself, with a handful of small shops and only a few restaurants. It's basically a nicely relaxing base for exploring the surrounding country. Ella has a small post office and one bank (Bank of...
