Sitting high up in the hills, the green and pleasant Nuwara Eliya offers both a rich history and proximity to pristine natural areas.
Venture out of the city with trips to Thotupola Kanda Nature Trail (in Ohiya), Devathura Falls (in Ramboda) and Ramboda Waterfall (in Pussellawa). There's much more to do: stroll through Horton Plains National Park, appreciate the extensive heritage of Nuwara Eliya and Tea Country, contemplate the waterfront views at Kande-ela Reservoir, and look for gifts at Mackwoods Tea Centre.

To see more things to do, reviews, photos, and more tourist information, you can read our Nuwara Eliya trip planner.

Colombo to Nuwara Eliya is an approximately 3.5-hour combination of taxi and flight. You can also drive; or do a combination of train and taxi. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 4th (Fri) to allow time to drive to Ella.

The relaxing hilltop village of Ella benefits from a more temperate climate than much of the rest of country thanks to its high elevation.
Ella is known for nature, spas, and parks. Your plan includes some of its best attractions: snap pictures at Nine Arches Bridge, admire the natural beauty at Ella Spice Garden, look for gifts at R. M. S Antique And Brassware, and take in the awesome beauty at Little Adam's Peak.
