Traveling by Udarata Manikea
(The Name of the Train to Badulla)

Udarata Menikea

For rail travellers from Colombo, Kandy and Nanu Oya (close to Nuwara Eliya) is surrounded by paddy fields along the banks of the river Gallanda Oya & has an old fort against a backdrop of mountains & a small lake. Uva, which stretches across the plains as far south as Kataragama, is sometimes held to be the original home of the Kandyan civilization, whose people would have used the river valleys draining into the River Mahaweli as a natural migration route into the hills. There is very beautiful railway bridge called nine arch bridge which is located close to Demodara. you can see it when you travel by vehicle also.
