In the morning, we will leave from the hotel for your journey. First, we will take you to see Ravana Falls. After Ravana Falls we will take you to visit the Nine Arches Bridge. After visiting the nine-arches bridge, we will give you an experience of a train journey. There you can see the breath-taking sceneries of the environment. After lunch we will take you to visit Ambuluwawa Tower. On the way to Ambuluwawa Tower, you can visit Ramboda Falls, a beautiful waterfall in Sri Lanka. Then we will bring
you to your hotel.
Ravana Falls is a popular sightseeing attraction in Sri Lanka. It currently ranks as one
of the widest falls in the country. This waterfall measures approximately 25 m (82 ft) in
height and cascades from an oval-shaped concave rock outcrop. During the local wet
season, the waterfall turns into what is said to resemble an areca flower with withering
petals. But this is not the case in the dry season, where the flow of water reduces
dramatically. The falls form part of the Ravana Ella Wildlife Sanctuary, and are located 6
km (3.7 mi) away from the local railway station at Ella.
The Nine Arches Bridge also called the Bridge in the Sky, is a viaduct bridge in Sri Lanka. It is one of
the best examples of colonial-era railway construction in the country. It is located in Demodara,
between Ella and Demodara railway stations. The surrounding area has seen a steady increase of
tourism due to the bridge's architectural ingenuity and the profuse greenery in the nearby hillsides.
The construction of the bridge is generally attributed to a local Ceylonese builder, P. K. Appuhami,
in consultation with British engineers. The chief designer and project manager of the 'upcountry railway
line of Ceylon' project was D. J. Wimalasurendra, a distinguished Ceylonese engineer and inventor. The
designer of the viaduct was Harold Cuthbert Marwood of Railway Construction Department of Ceylon
Government Railway. The 1923 report titled "Construction of a Concrete Railway Viaduct in Ceylon"
published by the Engineering Association of Ceylon has details of all the records including the plans and
drawings. 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, leading the
locals to build the bridge with stone bricks and cement, but without steel.
On our way from Demodara Railway Station to Haputale Railway Station we pass over this Nine
Arches Bridge and after that journey we can visit the Nine Arches Bridge again. There you can get
pictures of the nine arches bridge.
Tea production is one of the main sources of foreign exchange for Sri Lanka, and
accounts for 2% of GDP, contributing over US$1.3 billion in 2021 to the economy of Sri
Lanka. It employs, directly or indirectly, over 1 million people, and in 1995 directly
employed 215,338 on tea plantations and estates. In addition, tea planting by
smallholders is the source of employment for thousands whilst it is also the main form of
livelihood for tens of thousands of families. Sri Lanka is the world's fourth-largest
producer of tea. In 1995, it was the world's leading exporter of tea, with 23% of the total
world export, and Sri Lanka ranked second on tea export earnings in 2020 after China.
The highest production of 340 million kg was recorded in 2013, while the production in
2014 was slightly reduced to 338 million kg.

Reaching the top of Ambuluwawa one can experience the most amazing views which could
sometimes be covered by the ongoing mist. However, once the mist clears off the view can be
scary and freak out climbers, especially those who have a fear of heights. Do note that hiking
Ambuluwawa is not at all dangerous or risky, but it would not be the ideal kind of adventure for
those with a fear of heights. Avoid leaning on the railing to capture photographs especially at the
top as this is extremely risky and one could easily slip off from here. Ambuluwawa is a relatively
easy hike to do which gives you 360-degree views of the surrounding mountains, forests, rivers
and towns. It is an area richly diverse, with evergreen forests, blossomed flower plants as well
creepers and about 200 different kinds of plants from 80 plant families including a variety of
medicinal plants. Ambuluwawa is surrounded by many mountains including Piduruthalagala from
the East, Bible Rock (Bathalegala) from the West, Sri Pada (Adam’s Peak) from the South and
Knuckles Mountain Range from the North. Apart from these mountains many other mountains are
also clearly visible from here and adds to the beauty of the area. These are the Hanthana
Mountain Range, Hunnasigiri Mountain and mountain ranges associated with Algalla and
Kadugannawa. There is a cool mountain breeze in the area due to this reason. The Ambuluwawa
Hill and the adjacent forest is designated as a forest reservation which is named as the
Ambuluwawa ICC Forest Reservation. The history of the Ambuluwawa Temple dates back to the
13th century during the reign of King Buwanekabahu IV. It is said that the Ambuluwawa Peak was
the center of the Gampola Kingdom during his reign. But there is nothing with historical or
archaeological values in here.
