4.7
#1 of 290 in Parks in Sri Lanka
Go for a quick hike to the top of Little Adam's Peak, an easy walk from downtown Ella in a lush picturesque setting. The mountain’s name comes from the comparison with its similarly shaped but much larger counterpart, the massive Adam’s Peak in central Sri Lanka. Enjoy the the easy going, 45-minute trek to the summit, admiring views of verdant tea plantations along the way. When you reach the top, you’ll be rewarded with panoramic views of the rolling green hills and valleys below.

  • Beautiful vantage point that is good to climb. Until just before the "summit" it is like a park path, then come some stairs. On the way you pass tea plantations and the zip line.

  • It took me 45 minutes to climb and less than 30 minutes to go down. Going up was not that hard as expected. The views before and during sunset were great!!  more »

  • Awesome place with view - start at 98 Acres resort and walk up (about 20min to the peak). Most people stops here and return back but you could keep walking the track to the other peak to shake off the crowd (5min?)
  • If you want to enjoy a beautiful sunset looking at the lush green of the cloud forests and the tea plantations in Ella without hiking for hours Little Adam's Peak is the right choice for you! It has a very nice view and i love this place very much
