This is a beautiful spot to go and take picture (look at Instagram, there’s so many!). It did get kind of crowded. There were a couple vendors selling coconuts and other beverages, which was a nice refreshing treat.

A nice walk to the bridge. Wonderful views surrounding it. Beware of leeches this time of year though!

Well worth the trek up to the viewing point and down to the tracks. We ended up taking a tuk tuk back to the main road as everyone was knackered and it looked like it was going to start raining

It is a popular spot for taking pictures. Try to be there when a train is passing by the bridge to get a good shot. You can reach there walking along the tracks from the Ella station. Will take around 25 mins from the station.

This structure with a tunnel on one side and a bend on the other is one of architectural ingenuity and when a train crosses the bridge, it is magical and a must see in Ella

When we visited the place it had atmwast 100 people waiting for a glimpse of the train on the nine arch bridge. Check the train times and plan your visit as the trains dont run all the time

This was the highlight of the train trip we took... amazing structure past Ella station. Beautiful scenery and well worth going the extra 15 minutes to see this site. Most of our train companions jumped off at Ella which is the touristy location on this...More
