Influenced by its colonial history and nestled amongst dense, lush forestation, Bandarawela is known to be a base for eco-tourism in Sri Lanka. This popular destination offers plenty of adventurous things to do to keep oneself entertained during a few night’s stay. Apart from simply unwinding in quiet luxury at Dutch House Bandarawela, why not set off on an adventure to explore the region’s famed spots? Such as the quaint town of Ella, where you can experience the gorgeous vistas of hillside tranquillity combined with breath-taking views. Another attraction around the area that you must visit during your time here is the Ravana Ella or Little Adam ‘s Peak located among the island’s lush central highlands. Among the plentiful things to do in Bandarawela, one could also hike to the famous Demodara Nine Arch Bridge, wander around tea gardens and possibly stop to admire the famous Diyalumaor Ravana Falls, along with a visit to an important heritage site; the Dowa Temple.
A quaint town nestled among the hills of central Sri Lanka, Ella is the new favourite spot for the adventurous tourists and locals, alike.
A rather unique holiday location bordering the hill country, the diverse biodiversity and extraordinary views across Haputale make it a town worth visiting.
