Train trip from Colombo to Bandarawela

The journey starts 6 in the morning and after nearly one hour the best part of the journey unfolds before your eyes.

Many a time does the train pass over lush green paddy fields and tea estates and through iron bridges standing heavy over the rivers rushing by enriched with the rains falling now and then. Yet the best view the journey offers is the one of the seven renowned falls, St. Clair’s, now threatened by the proposed Upper Kotmale Hydropower Project (UKHP) among many waterfalls and waterways which stream down the mountains along the railway track.

Even many small train stations built during the colonial period with their little patches of flower and mist-covered platforms hold their own naive beauty to many a traveller and the villagers clad in bright colours selling ‘vade’, mango and ‘pera’ to the train traveller.
