Little Adam’s Peak | Sri Lanka Travel

Adam’s Peak (rather than Little Adam’s Peak) is a well known mountain in Sri Lanka, as it’s used as a pilgrimage site for Buddhists, Christians and Muslims alike (maybe others too). Due to a few reasons (Jenny’s blistered feet, my laziness, and a general lack of time) we decided to reject the 5,000 step climb. To make up for this…

Nine Arch Bridge, Cooking and terrifying night
Don’t walk down a train track in Sri Lanka in the pitch black, without a torch and without knowing how long it will take. That is our advice to you. And we suggest you take it. Nine Arch Bridge however is well worth the visit. Ella Rocks eating (Cooking) course Having passed on the very expensive (50 pounds each) cooking…<p><a href="https://robandjenny.co.uk/index.php/2019/04/23/nine-arch-bridge-cooking-and-terrifying-night/" class="btn-continue">Continue Reading<span class="arrow-continue">→</span></a></p>
One day in Ella: train, massage, chill
Ella is the place to come in Sri Lanka if you are a backpacker looking for modern conveniences, western food and partying. We managed to also fit in some relaxation. Apology: we are really behind on these blogs, we have been super busy planning the next few months of our trip. Getting there The same way many journeys on this…<p><a href="https://robandjenny.co.uk/index.php/2019/04/22/one-day-in-ella-train-massage-chill/" class="btn-continue">Continue Reading<span class="arrow-continue">→</span></a></p>
Lipton’s Seat from Haputale: A walk through history
The original founder of Lipton tea, renowned for industrialising the marketing of tea, held Haputale and its surrounding hills in high esteem. Come to Lipton’s Seat and you can really see why. Apology: we are really behind on these blogs, we have been super busy planning the next few months of our trip. Breakfast balcony There aren’t enough times we…<p><a href="https://robandjenny.co.uk/index.php/2019/04/21/liptons-seat-from-haputale-a-walk-through-history/" class="btn-continue">Continue Reading<span class="arrow-continue">→</span></a></p>
Haputale perched up high
The Sri Lankan Hill Country is spectacular, with huge mountains, valleys and ridges running through the centre of the Sri Lankan island. Haputale is a small village/town nestled on the top of one of these ridges. It is generally used as a gateway to Lipton’s seat, but Haputale itself really is worth a visit. Not more trains Now just about…<p><a href="https://robandjenny.co.uk/index.php/2019/03/29/haputale-perched-up-high/" class="btn-continue">Continue Reading<span class="arrow-continue">→</span></a></p>
Lovers Leap Waterfall
Waking up to a beautiful view across the valley was brilliant, but we knew that even greater scenery awaited us after a little walk. We, as always, opted for the cheap option and used the bus plus walk instead of a tuk-tuk to Lovers Leap waterfall. Getting to town Nuwara Eliya sits next to a lake, just on the edge…<p><a href="https://robandjenny.co.uk/index.php/2019/03/28/lovers-leap-waterfall/" class="btn-continue">Continue Reading<span class="arrow-continue">→</span></a></p>
Hill country railway to Nuwara Eliya
One of the most Instagrammed tourist attraction in Sri Lanka is the nine arch bridge designed by the British over 100 years ago. The majority of people take a train from Colombo or Kandy to Ella to enjoy the scenic rail and see the bridge. We decided to cut it up into stages starting first in Nuwara Eliya, aka: Little…<p><a href="https://robandjenny.co.uk/index.php/2019/03/27/hill-country-railway-to-nuwara-eliya/" class="btn-continue">Continue Reading<span class="arrow-continue">→</span></a></p>
Kandyan dance and big Buddha
Our second full day in Kandy was slightly more relaxing than our first. The walk up to the Big Buddha was lovely and it was interesting to watch the traditional Kandyan dancing. The Best Hostel keeps on getting better We woke up at a more reasonable hour today remembering that breakfast was included in our ten pound a night price.…<p><a href="https://robandjenny.co.uk/index.php/2019/03/25/kandyan-dance-and-big-buddha/" class="btn-continue">Continue Reading<span class="arrow-continue">→</span></a></p>
Kandy Tooth Temple & Botanical Gardens
Kandy is really a brilliant city, worth coming to visit and with such a lot to do. As you may have noticed from the previous Sri Lanka Blogs we do not have a very large budget so we decided not to take a tour as most people seem to do, but instead we explored this amazing city ourselves and met…<p><a href="https://robandjenny.co.uk/index.php/2019/03/23/kandy-tooth-temple-botanical-gardens/" class="btn-continue">Continue Reading<span class="arrow-continue">→</span></a></p>
