Delve into Sri Lanka’s mysterious heart with a trip to the lush central highlands. This part of the country is colder and windier, making for diverse ecosystems filled with myriad flora and fauna – perfect for honeymooners seeking a taste of the exotic.
You’ll be picked up from your hotel by an English-speaking driver and taken to the vast Horton Plains. Move through marshes and evergreen forests, trekking past colourful endemic plant species and a variety of native animals. If you’re lucky, you might even catch a glimpse of the elusive slender loris.
Next up is the small town of Ella, a perfectly formed hill-country village that will likely capture your heart from the moment you arrive. Take the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to hike Little Adam’s Peak and be rewarded by soul-stirring views over verdant Sri Lankan valleys. Keep an eye out for elephants – many of whom inhabit the forests around this region – and see how many tea plantations you can spot from this elevated viewpoint.
The tour culminates with an experience that will stay with you forever. Board a train to travel along one of the world’s most scenic railways, speeding from Nanu Oya Station back to Ella Station while taking in some of the most stunning scenery in all of Sri Lanka.
