Buduruwagala Temple: a day trip from Ella

When I got to Ella at first I thought that I just wanted to relax and walk around the rice fields, climb Little Adam and Ella's rock.

Nevertheless, after the first long walk and the first trekking to Little Adam, I thought that I could do something different and look for a cultural activity.

At our guest house we saw a catalog with some organized day trips, and one caught my attention: the Buduruwagala Temple. As it looked a little expensive, I asked to the employee if it was possible to get to the temple with a public bus, and of course he said it wasn't....but guess what? It is actually really easy to go there by bus and you will pay only a few cents 🙂

Arashiyama Monkey Park

Our trip to Japan was marked by hunger and sweat, but we also had the opportunity to live many unforgettable moments.

This visit to Arashiyama was our best day trip from Kyoto, we enjoyed the day and we now carry a sweet memory of this experience 🙂

We had the opportunity to spend time roaming around free monkeys (I know, we always meet monkeys everywhere we go, we love them), have a nice walk and enjoy the views.

First of all, even if it was really (believe me when I say it) hot, we didn't mind walking our way up the hill.

Of course I was concerned about the safety of the animals, I don't really like to bother them just for my curiosity, but I read that the area is somehow a natural reserve, so I thought that it would be ok.
