The Ravana cave tunnels prove beyond doubt the architectural brilliance of King Ravana. These tunnels served as a quick means of transport through the hills & also as a secret passage. These tunnels networked all the important cities, airports and dairy farms. A .close look at these tunnels indicates that they are man-made and not natural formations. This Buddhist shrine at Kalutara was where once King Ravana's palace & a tunnel existed. Existing tunnel mouths are situated - Isthripur at Welimada, Ravana cave at Bandarawela, Senapitiya at Halagala, Ramboda, Labookelle, Wariyapola /Matale, and Sitakotuwa/Hasalaka. In addition there are many more tunnels.

demodara bridge/www.ellaokreechhotel.com
 

This is known as the Bridge in the Sky. One end of this curved 9 arch Demodara bridge is a tunnel. As the train passes the station the railway line loops upon itself, encircles an adjoining hill top and passes through a tunnel underneath the station which is around 75 – 100 feet below the station.

The railway loop was designed and built during the British Colonial period in the shape of a turban, this railroad loop is a unique feature in the hill country. The rail track goes around the mountain in a loop and through a tunnel beneath the Demodara Railway Station.

LITTLE ADAM'S PEAK                
www.ellaokreechhotel.com
 

One of the best ways to spend a morning in Ella is to tackle the beautiful short walk up to the top of Little Adam's Peak, a pyramid-shaped rock which stands opposite the far larger Ella Rock and offers marvelous views out over the hills The walk makes a very pleasant morning's excursion, and is fairly gentle and largely flat, apart from a small amount of climbing near the end. Count on around two hours return and go as early as possible before the clouds set in. To begin the walk, head down the Passara Road for 1km, passing pine woods to your left. Just past the 1km marker the road turns sharp left by a garden centre; take the path that goes off the right-hand side of the road, straight ahead through beautiful tea plantations.
There are various routes up, though they can become impassable during bad weather, so ask for directions and advice at your guest house before setting out. The usual route starts by following the railway line south of Ella for a couple of kilometers, passing right by the top of the Little Rawana Ella Falls, a small but eye-catching cascade, before striking up towards the summit. Another route starts from below Ella village, near Ravana Heights guest house. Take food, water and good footwear, and count on about four hours for the return trip - and take care in wet weather, when tracks can get slippery.
