Revealing Two of Ella’s Most Well Kept Secrets!

by | Mar 12, 2019

Sri Lanka tourism talks about everything from beaches to wildlife to hiking and breath-taking panoramas but never before have we offered a cable car ride and a mega zip line through beautiful sceneries of the jungle.

Cable Car Ride

Yes, it’s true! Ella Jungle Resort is located 2.5kms into the jungle where vehicle access is restricted to a certain point. You then have to travel a small distance by four-wheel jeep and ultimately get into a cable car for the final 400meter stretch to reach the resort.

For the first time in Sri Lanka, Ella Jungle Resort is the only hotel offering this mode of transport – where cable cars travel slowly above the river and trees below, taking guests to the resort – hidden amidst a trail of mountains.  With lush paddy fields and an abundance of greenery, Ella Jungle Resort offers a range of adventurous activities along with spacious chalets for accommodation, each overlooking the gushing waters of Kirindi Oya.

16 jungle chalets, 6 jungle cottages and 6 jungle cabins are available at this resort, each made with environmentally friendly materials. The chalets are spacious private rooms with attached bathrooms, overlooking the river, ideal for honeymooners escaping the hustle bustle of city life. The chalets and cabins are suitable for families or larger groups as they have an upper and a lower deck and offer peaceful views of the river.

At Ella Jungle Resort, you will enjoy the satisfaction of being part of Mother Nature, and an ambience of silence and spaciousness. Disconnect from modern day lifestyle and connect with jungles, waterfalls, mountain springs and gushing streams. With plenty of flora and fauna to explore within the resort, you can also take part in waterfall adventures such as toddy
tapper’s walk, monkey rope, high rope and low rope courses – thereby enjoying a fun-filled family holiday. Apart from the on-site adventurous activities, you can also explore nearby attractions in Ella town – Ella Gap, Little Adam’s Peak, Nine Arches Bridge and more.

Flying Ravana Mega Zip Line

Definitely one of the best things to do in Ella is to experience the longest and fastest zip line in South Asia.  A determined team of outdoor specialists from Sri Lanka and Europe have come together with this adrenaline-charged activity for the first time in Sri Lanka! Escorting you through the mesmerizing backdrops of iconic tea estates, the Mini Adam’s Peak and lush greenery, Flying Ravana Mega Zipline is a must for adventure lovers!

If you are wondering about the safety of Zip Lining in Sri Lanka, do not fret it. The Flying Ravana Ziplines are certified by the European Ropes Course Association for its high quality and safety standards. Thick ropes are used as zip line cables to provide action-packed adventure from beginning to end. The skilled zip line team will provide helmets if needed, along with harness, safety equipment and any other instructions/assistance as required.
