Reviewed December 27, 2013

Having been running Health and Safety projects for some years, I took great pleasure in jumping onto the railway track and heading down it with great abandon. That pleasure turned into mild panic as I hit a tunnel knowing that the 15.30 train was minutes behind me and I needed to get through it if I wanted to get a photo of the train crossing the bridge. Nothing to do but run across the 30 or so meters making every effort not to trip over the sleepers. Got through without any issues with enough time to settle down on the wall of the bridge and wait for the train: got a great photo as the giant engine pulled centimetres past me, passengers waving hello. The scenery as you walk the tracks is as great as anything you will have seen in the hill country. As the bridge finishes you can take the path that climbs steeply upwards and follow it to a road, cross that road and walk through the tea plantation to get to the foot of Little Adam's rock.

If you want to take a look at this place walk along the tracks to get there. We went in a taxi and it struggled with the rough track, eventually not being able to get up a steep slope, so you will need to walk a little way anyway.

Take the track from Ella Station and walk for about 45 minutes through the tea plantation and you will be rewarded with a fantastic view of the viaduct

Walked to the nine arch bridge. Here a lady said she had lost a ring and was looking for it. We started to help, but quickly she lost interest and started to show us photos of here family and notes that her visitors had written. She invited us up a very steep bank to her house, where she started to make tea for us. But we said we didnt have enough time to stay. It was interesting to see her house and see how she likes. Much more authentic than doing the touristy village tours in other areas. All she wants is for you to write her a note on her notepad and we gave her a small tip. do go. we then walked to Demodora along the railway track - great walk.

Standing at nearly 100 feet this beautiful bridge is lovely to see. We took the back track after Little Adam Peak. We had a cool drink at the beautiful 98 acre resort then past the tea factory then down a dirt road and a hard to find track. It was fun but I think there are easier ways of finding it. We then walked 5km along the railway line back to Ella.
