Linear route from Ella, following the rails of the train track at the beginning to turn left, after crossing a large bridge, and begin to climb a steep path that ascends the slope, crossing some tea plantation, and reach the promontory called "Ella's Rock", from which there is an interesting panoramic.
We continue through the mountain rope until we reach the small Rawana sanctuary (scarcely a cave with a Buddha image) with interesting views as well.
The path that follows ends up becoming a track through which we descend comfortably to the train station of Heeloya, where we end the tour. Here you can go back on the road or take the train back to Ella. What we did was to take the train in the opposite direction to Haputale to enjoy the landscape of undulating tea plantations.

Train stop

Vía tren

Heeloya railway station. Here you can continue and return via the train tracks or taking the train back to Ella. We bought a ticket in 3rd class at a ridiculous price to go to Haputale enjoying beautiful views of the tea fields. We were almost alone, but the return by train to Ella was a hell of what was crowded by the train (it is a very popular tourist-scenic route), we barely fit in the compartment. So I recommend making the trip only in the W direction, not in the E.
