Nine Arch Bridge Demodara Ella

The Nine Arch Bridge – also known as the Bridge in the Sky – is one of Sri Lanka’s most iconic attractions, featuring a stunning viaduct bridge that towers over a gentle valley of tea plants. Located between the Ella and Demodara railway stations, it’s easy enough to make your way to the bridge – you can either follow the signs that point the way, or hop into one of Sri Lanka’s tuk-tuks to get you there. If you can visit the bridge before sunrise, you’ll get some amazing photos of the area without the crowds of tourists that flock through later.

Bear in mind that it is a working bridge, and that trains periodically pass through its tracks. The sound of the train will reach you well before it arrives, so keep an ear out and be ready to move out of the way when it goes by!
