  • It is a MUST VISIT and UNIQUE railway and location. A train ride is recommended to enjoy this place to the utmost with its beautiful scenery. The railway is so designed that the train picks up the passengers from the station, moves slowly downwards and takes a full turn and goes underground, passes the station again and gets over ground again. It's best if you visit it in the morning.
  • Could be the most famous railway station in Sri Lanka. There is a story that local fellow came up with this brilliant idea when engineers stucked constructing the railway
  • It's a wonderful experience.
  • Very much closer to Ella, if you are travelling to you must Ella this unique railway loop.
  • Unique place. wonder any other similar place there in the world. Train goes inside the station and then under the station. Super idea and architecture.
