When arriving at Bandaranaike International Airport, a T2 Travels representative will be waiting to meet and greet you. Then we will start on our way to Ella.
On our way, we will visit Bopath Ella, a storied waterfall whose waters cascade in the shape of a leaf of the sacred fig tree. According to local myth, it is haunted by the restless spirit of a local young woman, who jumped off the cliff when her lover from the nearby Colombo abandoned her. The myth says that her spirit appears in the form of blue light near the place where she has died.
Continuing on our way, we will climb the Little Adam’s Peak. A popular hiking spot, named after the more famous pilgrimage destination due to similar shape, but on a much smaller scale. From the summit, appears a beautiful enchanting vista of Sri Lankan mountains shrouded in mists and clouds.
We will also visit the Nine Arches Bridge, a stunning colonial-era railway bridge that gently curves and span over a ravine covered in lush green growth.

Traveling along the coast, we will visit the Galle Fort. Located in the city of the same name, this walled fortress was built by Portuguese in the 16th century and expanded by Dutch East India Company in the 17th century. Today, it is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a very popular tourist spot. Its beautifully restored colonial-era buildings are a prime example of European architecture in South Asia between the 16th and 19th centuries.
Continuing on our way, we will reach the town of Kosgoda where the Kosgoda Sea Turtle Conservation Project is located. This institution was founded at one of the most active nesting sites, where turtle eggs are collected and transferred to a hatchery, where baby turtles can hatch safely away from predators. This way, the turtles are protected from the many dangers they face during the early part of their life and also the preservation of these magnificent animals.
While in Kosgoda, we will also take a River Boat Safari. A one-hour ride on the Madu Ganga River. This wetland ecosystem is a place of stunning biodiversity. The marshy mangrove forests of its banks, and many islands, are home to more than 300 plant species and nearly 250 species of vertebrates.
