Took nearly 4 hours train from Nuwara Eliya with other backpackers. After 20 minutes bus ride from station, walked all the way up to the tea plantation. I was quite surprise that I am going to spend the next three days in a tea plantation hostal – 1964 Boutique Hostel. The owner and his father are so nice and kind to me, especially the owner is a chef who worked in local hotel before!

Walked all the way from hostel to Nine Arches Bridge. So waited for an hour and decided to go down and walk along the track and wait for the train to come. Then walk back to Ella station for 3km distance.

On the next day morning the owner showed me around his tea plantation. The view is different from those in Little Adam’s Peak. You can feel how people live in this place and it is 5km away from town center.
