A major crossing point along the nation's main rail artery, Demodara Nine Arch Bridge stands as a marvel of the region's colonial-era engineering. Completed in 1921, the bridge features nine successive arched spans stretching 91.5 m (300 ft) across a small valley. Standing at a height of 24 m (80 ft), the structure features no steel or metal in its construction--only bricks, cement, and rocks. You can make your way to the bridge from the nearby town of Ella via a jungle trail, at the end of which you'll have a clear view of this landmark structure. Alternatively, ride the train between the two stations on either side of the bridge for fine views and a chance to travel like the local population.

We were at Little Adam's Peak before that. Accordingly, we passed a sign from the city with "fastest way to Nine arch Bridge" and then ultimately decided on the path (rather than the Google Maps away along the main road). You walk through the jungle without being raised or burned by the sun.
The bridge is a great view, the visitors must consult the train timing to enjoy the passing of train along the bridge. more »
