Sri Lanka Railways will introduce a super luxury Train from next month from Kandy to Ella and back. The train will operate daily from Kandy to Ella. Leave Kandy in the morning to Ella and return in the evening.
The train has a seating capacity of over 176 AC first class seats and over 144 second class seats and will be named as ‘Ella Odyssey’ which will be operated by Sri Lanka Railways.
One of the unique features of this is that the train will stop at several tourist hot spots which will allows guests to get down and visit these places and come back again which is seen as a huge boost to the tourism industry and will be first of its kind in Sri Lanka.
