Hello Wonderful Steemians,

I had more travel experience in my state. Within last two weeks I shared some of them. Some travel trips was adventures. But our friends had more positive attitudes. So we could won our destinations. Today I wanna share amazing and difficult tour experience where I went Elgin falls in Uva province. One of our friend suggested idea to see Elgin falls.

We start our journey from Colombo railway station. And down to Ambewela station. From Colombo to Badulla, you can see this waterfall, which flows far and wide between the Nanu Oya Railway Station and the Ambewela Railway Station. It is therefore a wonder to visit Elgin Falls by train.

We had a long way to go. The waterfall is a spectacularly beautiful waterfall with two sections at a distance. We went first through the tea plantations.

If we go to the adventures, always take instructions from villagers. They give best guidance for our protection and keep time save.

As we ascended the mountain we could see the downing railway.
The waterfall is located on a steep cliff in front of the precipice. The waterfalls fall far off the railway line.

Slowly we climbed some distance since railway station. Everywhere seemed green nature included forest. Previously we had experience about adventures. So we didn't scared that moment. Cool winds satisfied us lot.

We could see Elgin falls top of the rock fall to the below. That moment we were so tired with climbing. After the find water fall we had passion to reach there sooner.

The train journey from Colombo to Badulla is one of the most beautiful train journeys in Sri Lanka. This is because the main railway line is adorned with waterfalls, natural forested mountains, foggy peaks and natural beauty, as well as man-made landscapes such as tea estates, pine forests and bridges.

Situated in a gorge in the middle of a dense forest, Elgin Falls brings you a smile. She challenges you once. Because nobody can get near it.

The location of the land around the waterfall is very rough, as it is a very deep abyss. The height of the abyss cannot be specified. However, due to the abyss, no one can get close to the waterfall.

It was very difficult to travel in the jungle. We did not get lost because we were making road signs. Otherwise the roads are difficult to find. In addition, heavy attacks by the aphids helped to slow down travel.

We moved away from the branches, sometimes crawling on the ground and slipping another time. Walking through the jungle was difficult, as it was difficult to get around. Everybody's opinion was to walk to the center of the creek or to the bottom of the mountain.

Sometimes we slipped, but at the foot of the waterfall we reached the bottom of the waterfall without the help of roots and passengers. The beauty of it was that we drove along the waterfall towards our destination. We walked through the rock, sometimes in the desert, and through the jungle of more difficult places.

The time from Ambewela station was over 5.5 hours. These spectacular scenes helped us see all our exhaustion go away. We took a little time to shower and did not forget to bathe. Our journey was extinguished.

We started our journey early morning. So we could save our time to came railway station again before evening time.

On our way back, we took the last step to walk along our landmarks. We made our way through the forest clearing the road, finding it difficult to find our way. He then returned to the Ambewela Railway Station. It ended up being one of the most thrilling experiences of life. Thanks for visiting. See you again.
