The journey by train from Kandy to the highlands of Nuwara Eliya, Ella or Dickoya is one of the most fabulous experiences in Sri Lanka. The climb uphill up to 6,000 ft above sea level, is one of the greatest railway journeys in the world. The dramatic landscape of the highlands stirs the senses as you wind past lush tea plantations, majestic peaks and rushing waterfalls.

The one rail journey of three-hour trip from Colombo to Kandy will take you to spiritual capital, home to the legendary Temple of the Sacred Tooth Relic. The journey from Kandy to Ella takes seven to eight hours and shows you Sri Lanka’s tea country, passing swirling, curling plantations.

If you really want to breath in the sea air, the rail tour from Colombo to Galle brings you fresh breezes and the smell of sea salt right into the carriages. Don’t forget to sit on the right-hand side of the train, you’ll have views out over the ocean as the train clatters out of Colombo.
