After our Yala Safari, we drove upwards on the coast to reach Kirinda beach before we decided to turn left heading up to Ella.
Many people told us, Kirinda beach is not worth to go there, cause of the rocks on the beach side as most of the tourists only look for beaches where they can go swimming…
Kirinda beach is a beach without anything, no shops, no tourists, only one hotel (but a pretty nice on, you can sleep in big tents directly on the seaside)
From Kirinda beach we drove directly to Ella, which is know as the backpacker paradise.
On our way to Ella we passed a waterfall which is primarily use a shower and bath room.
Further down the road, we met some monkeys, waiting on the street for some food
And finally reached Ella in the late afternoon. Ella is very small town where you meet most of the backpackers, travelling through Sri Lanka. This town has many cheap but clean hotels and good Sri Lankan restaurants (e.g. you can eat Rotti here). Good prices, friendly people and lot of other tourists to share experience and travel routes. This place is also a nice starting point for visiting tea fields, visiting Worlds End, Little Adam’s Peak and Horton Plains with its beautiful Baker Falls.
The next day we spent in Ella with a motorbike (ok, it was more a scooter) and visiting some interesting spots in this area
