All reviews railway station arch bridge aerial view runs directly local station minute train trip unique experience sri lanka opposite direction train leaving small train train times great engineering catch the train eye view nice trip vantage point
Its have nice engagement of the train travel lovers to see how the railway rack makes advance skills in past. Can walk to visit and nice to stay train coming time and that's seems like unforgettable experience of the Demodara loop.
My wife, our grandson Ryan and I parked our car at Ella railway station, on 23rd July 2019, and hired a tuk-tuk that took us first to the "Nine Arch Bridge" and then to Demodera railway station. We went there to see the famous 'spiral...More
The train, between Badulla and Ella takes a spiral loop, going through a tunnel underneath the Demodara railway station to maintain the maximum allowed gradient of 1:44. You can take a high angle view if you go to Walasbadda Vantage Point, about 1 hour drive...More
I will be honest and will go straight to the point.
In my opinion, the "Demodara loop" is the best part of the Ella train.
You will experience a fascinating short journey (6 kms long), avoiding the scenic but also often uncomfortable trip from Kandy...More
We caught the train from Ella to Demodara to ride across the Nine Arch Bridge. That was fun. At Demodara you can watch the train loop back under the station. The station itself is quaint. It probably represents the true Sri Lanka. Not touristy, just...More

The Nine Arch Bridge and the Demodara Loop is located 2 and 7 kms after Ella, so you could go by train from Nuwara Eliya and get off at Demodara which is next to the main road so you could meet your driver there. But the loop starts at the station so if you want to go through it you would have to get off at the next station. I saw the loop in March but it is not so interesting to see. Train from NE to Ella takes about 3 hours.
If you want to pass through it check the train schedules here.

Another option is to go from Ella to Badulla and you will see both attractions, so your driver could pick you up there.
