train from Ella to nuwara eliya


In Mirrisa now and going to Nuwara eliya on 16th.

I am told the train ride from Ella to nuwara eliya is great, so want to drive from mirrisa to Ella and then take a train Ella to nuwara eliya.

Can someone guide me where I can find out the timing for trains ans if the same can be booked online.

Hi there,

All described in


Only Exporail/Rajadhani carriages, on 2nd train of the day on _some_ days of the week, can be booked in advance over the Internet. As Mirissa to Ella is about 5 hours drive and there are only 3 trains per day however you'd need to leave Mirissa VERY early to catch a same day train (to Nanu Oya), otherwise stay overnight in Ella...

All the best,

<Erik> & [Sandya]
