Not for nothing is Sri Lanka nicknamed the ‘Spice Island.’ The finest and most unique spices are produced right here in the nation. The Ella Spice Garden is a must-see in Ella if you’re a foodie who wants to understand more about the origins of the spices you use.
This is a small-scale operation operated by a local family to educate visitors about local cultivation methods and the vast array of Sri Lankan spices. You’ll be given a tour of this lovely home by someone who can communicate in English.
Spices like cinnamon, cloves, chiles, turmeric, nutmeg, cacao, and coffee have an alluring scent that draws tourists in droves. You may also take a cooking lesson or have a delicious traditional dinner while you’re here. Booking in advance is highly recommended for these popular Ella tourist attractions.
