The charming village of Ella nestled in the lush highlands of Sri Lanka and landscaped by world-famous tea plantations, is an amazing place for a stopover. Ella is an ideal location for trekking & cycling and an enchanting village that is offering many visitors a chance to experience the Country’s culinary traditions. If you want to learn to eat and cook Sri Lankan rice & curry then this is the place to visit. You will feel like a local, as you taste their spicy food and mingle with them.
There is a Sunday Market in the town of Bandarawela where local farmers and traders gather to sell produce and household products to people that come in from neighbouring towns. Ella in comparison has a smaller market every Wednesday morning. You will see the Passara road lined up with women in brightly dressed saris and cloth & jacket, selling fresh vegetables and herbs from their makeshift stalls.
A few days in Ella will be long enough to sample the tea, taste Sri Lankan cuisine, take on a few cookery classes and mingle with the friendly locals and when you leave this little town you will take with you fond memories of a stop over well spent. A scenic Tea estate resort on 98 acres with breathtaking views is definitely worth a stay. The weather is generally between 20-28 degrees Celsius throughout the year. You can book your Ella holiday at 98-acre resort with Leisure World Tours.
