Ella is blessed with some of the most beautiful views, you could find in Sri Lanka. Only 8 km from Bandarawela, this small town is used as a base for plenty of trekking expeditions to the surrounding countryside. A taste of the breathtaking scenery of Ella could be had, if you just walk into the Garden of the Grand Ella Motel (Formerly Ella Rest House), where you seem to be standing at the edge of the world, and everything around you seems to disappear at your feet. Another fine view is from the Ambiente Hotel, where the wide doorway, opens out to the mountains, creating a dramatic cinematic like experience, on entry. Some of the places you could see in Ella are the Ella Gap, Ravana Ella Falls, Little Adam’s Peak and Bambaragala Peak among the other many varied pleasant walks with stunning scenery.

Ravana Falls currently ranks as one of the widest falls in the country. This waterfall measures approximately 25 m (82 ft) in height and is steeped in mythology from the Indian epic, Ramayana.
At 1141m in height and a generally easy hike up the mountain, Little Adam's Peak provides for a sweeping panoramic view across the beautiful countryside.
