About
This tour will give you the chance to hop on to the most famous Blue Train ride and visit one of the most visited places in Haputale. Haputale is an amazing place to visit who love to travel on cold weather and through the tea plantations. It is nice to walk on the railway to the Adisham bungalow, a monastery run by Benedictine Monks. Wrapped in the tranquillity of the misty hills, Adisham Bungalow attracts every eye that falls on it.

Adisham Bungalow houses the Adisham Monastery of Saint Benedict. It has a relic (a chip of a bone) of St. Sylvester at the chapel. The house was built in 1931 by an English aristocrat and planter Sir Thomas Villiers, former Chairman of George Steuart Co, a trading and estate agency based in Colombo. Sir Thomas was a grandson of Lord John Russell and descendant of the Dukes of Bedford. Named after Adisham, it was designed by R. Booth and F. Webster in Tudor and Jacobean style, on 10 acres (40,000 m2) of land. Adisham Hall played host to many prominent personalities of the colony until the retirement of Sir Thomas, after which it was sold to Sedawatte Mills owned by Vimala Wijewardene in 1949. In 1961 it was purchased by the Roman Catholic Church and was subsequently converted to a monastery. The house is well preserved along with its period fittings and furniture and is open to visitors. 01.00 PM – You will enjoy your lunch in the middle of the tea plantations and walk back to Haputale station to catch your train to Ella. 02.00 PM – Upon the train schedule, you will take your train to Ella between 02.00 - 02.30 PM. 03.30 PM – On arrival at Ella station, you will be taken by our TUK TUK driver back to your hotel. 04.00 PM – You will be dropped off to your hotel in Ella.
