Welcome to everyone’s favourite hill-country village and the place to ease off the travel accelerator
with a few leisurely days resting in your choice of some of the country’s best guesthouses. The
views through Ella Gap are stunning, and on a clear night you can even spy the subtle glow of the
Great Basses lighthouse on Sri Lanka’s south coast. Don’t be too laid-back though; definitely make
time for easygoing walks through tea plantations to temples, waterfalls and viewpoints. After building
up a hiking-inspired appetite, look forward to Sri Lanka’s best home-cooked food and the
minisplurge of an extended Ayurvedic treatment.
