Sri Lanka - Train Ride

The Sri Lankan Railway network showcases some of the most magnificent scenic rail routes in the world. The Main Line in particular, extending between Columbo and Badulla, delivers a captivating experience as it snakes itself over the undulating countryside boasting sunken waterfalls, lush forested mountains, misty peaks, and sprawling tea estates.

 

The allure of riding the Sri Lankan rails, however, cannot be limited to the expansive landscape they cover. The passengers as well lend themselves to the colorful and easy-going atmosphere, encouraged by the lazy chugging of the train over the hills. Whether hanging out of doorways while narrowly dodging tunnel mouths or staring pensively out the window, a spirited smile or playful glance is never hard to find.
