Little Adam's Peak, Ella

4.7
#1 of 179 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.

  • Easy to find... close to the town and a great way to walk off that local breakfast! Amazing views ... you haven’t seen Sri Lanka until you have done this walk!  more »
  • Also for us (60 and 70) was this walk. We came people v all ages, including children of 4 years against bv. Half fine path, half good steps. Above the reward: ' the view '. Bottle of water has to be useful. Only drawback: you walk every now and then in the file, what impressed us on a comic, all those tourists on that one path. But very worth it.

  • I started at 7am. which is the perfect time to start the long journey. I hired a scooter to go to the starting point of the stair, but I had to stop before about 400m earlier. though I first time misunderstood the way and end up in front of 98 Acres Resort & Spa, which was also an excellent spot to visit. when I start climbing it was an excellent weather, cool breeze, birds were singing and shaded stairs by trees and also seen some tea flowers by the side of stair ways. Excellent spot to visit...
  • If you are coming to Ella this is a place that most of you can visit & you must. It has a facinating view. It's very good for you to have some exercise by doing little bit hiking in Little Adam's Peak. It is a very good place to see the sun rising. Also it has a huge range of panorama area. It will take 20 minutes to climb up.
  • Enjoyed a lot. Tourists attractive place and there and more hotels around here. Nice place If u r planing to going there take ur hats with u. There sun shine can not be bearable Morning or evening is the best time to be there.
  • Its a fairly easy hike and there is path is well constructed most of the parts and you don’t need a guide to do this trip.Literally its a small hike for a fantastic breathtaking view.if you willing to go Please mind to bring water bottles because there have any water taps or water resources on that path.Please don’t pollute this beautiful place
  • Extremely beautiful place with breath taking panoramic views of surrounding blue mountains covered with clouds. A windy peak of a mountain just close to the Namunukula, the giant. Bandarawela town is in vicinity. Best time to climbing is the dawn if you want to avoid sun. But even in the day time you won't feel hot due to the chilling wind. Path is well constructed in most of the parts. There are some short distances where an extra care should be taken when stepping.
