Mountains of Sri Lanka
Colorful slow-train crosses a wooden bridge, then heads into the clouds. When the clouds disappear tea plantations, crispy green welcomes her. A Stationmaster, with green flags are welcoming her. Beyond the tea estate a waterfall is sending cascades of water into thin air. Below rift valleys, with enormous rainforest trees. In the train, dreamers, businessmen, lovers and home comers are gazing out of windows and open doors.
So close yet such a contrast from the coast, the mountains of Sri Lanka are easy to reach. From wild untouched alpine forest, to enormous tea estates with a touch of colonial days, a journey into Sri Lankas mountains, is both a cultural exploration and a step deep into nature.
Speed up here is a bit slower than in the valleys and at the coast, roads are hairpin, circling in and out, its time to get down in gear.
Let your driver take you into the deep green, ask him to stop where ever you feel like. Stay at fine little hotels and guesthouses, with a view to the valleys, and ridges beyond. Go on walks to worlds end, to fine waterfalls, take a dip and refresh. Learn to cook in Ella. Hang out at a verandah with a book. Breeze the mountain air.
