Udarata Menike: Iron maiden of the mist

Travelling by train is a lovely experience that all Sri Lankans enjoy. The dazzling views of the upcountry Main Line will leave you with splendid memories lasting a lifetime. Endorsed by many travellers as one of the best railway journeys in Asia, is the trip from Colombo to Badulla on the magnificent Udarata Menike. This 10 hour journey is filled with spectacular scenes of tea plantations, valleys and ravines. The long rail journey takes you past the nation’s highest train station at Pattipola. En route the view of Batalegala (Bible Rock) are stunning. For photo enthusiasts, this rail journey is a picturesque paradise. The awe inspiring high bends as the train negotiates steep gradients and cliff hanger stops add an aura of adventure to the journey that has aa captivating history. It is testament to the passion and commitment of the staff of the Ceylon Government Railway in her golden days.



The ambience is super chilled out. A lot of wood furniture and décor with lovely light blue contrasts. Whoever created the playlist for the music has great taste. It’s a nice place for a simple date, just to grab a quick lunch or even to get some dinner with friends.
