Ella is a beautiful small village in Sri Lanka's hill country with little more than a handful of shops, hotels and guesthouses, but it has an almost perfect climate and occupies a very scenic vantage point, with views on a fine day stretching right across the South Coast of Sri Lanka.
A traveller writes:
"The view through the Ella gap was probably the best in the entire island. It was quite early and the isolated hills on the plain popped up like little islands in the mist."
As if view's weren't enough, Ella is sourrounded by hills perfect for walks through tea plantations to temples and waterfalls.
The town is also a useful base for day trips to Badulla and the Dunhinda Falls.
