Situated in the central mountains, as a small, ancient village which dates back over 2000 years. The area gained the name Dhowa as it is located within a ring of mountains, with a river which flows across the plateau.

Adisham Bungalow

A country house near Haputale, it currently houses the Adisham monastery of Saint Benedict. It has a relic of St. Sylvester at the chapel and was built in 1931 by Sir Thomas Villiers - an English aristocrat and planter. Designed by R. Booth and F. Webster in Tudor and Jacobean style. The house is well preserved along with its period fittings and furniture, and is open to visitors.

Ella Rock

For views across the Hill Country and with the town nestled in the hills below you, this walk is about 2 hours each way, and about half of it is along the railway line before cutting off into the hills. Leave Ella around 5 in the morning and enjoy breakfast watching over the sunrise.

Nine Arch Bridge

Also known as the Bridge in the Sky, it is one of the best examples of colonial-era railway construction in Sri Lanka. Located in Demodara, between Ella and the Demodara railway station, it is known for it architectural ingenuity and the profuse greenery in the nearby hillsides. Popular rumours suggest that when construction work commenced on the bridge, the Great War began between the empires of Europe and the steel assigned for this site was reallocated to Britain's War related projects at the battlefront. As a result, the work came to a standstill, leaving the locals to build the bridge with stone bricks and cement.

Walk through lush green tea plantations, past waterfalls and paddy fields to reach the peak of Little Adam’s Peak. Experience a beautiful 360 degree view, once at the top.
