Little Adam's Peak, Ella

4.7
#1 of 180 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.

  • Despite starting the morning rain, once at the top the weather is clear and were entitled to a beautiful panorama on the mountains, Ella Rock and waterfall. Not many people, ideal for disconnecting the traffic and pollution, in short, to do!

  • You have to climb, but then you also have what! If you have the top on the other side off going to get to a second Summit, something more challenging, but the view is even more beautiful.

  • A nice easy walk from the main street in Ella. The actual turnoff isn't well posted so take care not to miss it. The last two hundred metres are a bit steep but most is concrete steps, just a small ro...  more »

  • If you are in to hike, this is place to be. And it's consist of 5 little ADVENTUROUS mountains all together. Why not try to climb them all? This Little Adam's peak is lower in height compared to the Ella rock which is also in Ella. The hike to the top is quite REFRESHING! You can have a 360 degree view from the mountain top, watch the picturesque sun rise and it is AMAZING! At night till the breaking dawn it is quite freezing up there. In the morning hike, sometimes a fellow dog guide might walk with you : )
  • We went to both peaks... Adams peaks and little Adam peak. This one is a peanut. It gets very romantic in the evening. Do not forget to bring good head lamp if you plan to stay longer!
  • Other than the food, this was my favorite part of the trip. The hike was easy and it goes through wonderful tea plantations. The view at the top is phenomenal and you get a great view of Ella Rock. The 9-arch bridge is nearby, so you can do that after. I loved eating and having a beer at 98 Acres after too!
  • Walk up from Ella is lovely. Great views over tea plantations & other mountains. When you have reached the top the views are just stunning. If it's not misty, as it was when we got there. But as one side clears the other mists over. So be sure to stay long enough to all the way around. You can see top of Ella, Ella rock, tea plantations etc. Just great. 👍
  • Very easy climb. Nice views at the top. Perfect activity for people who want to go for a walk but don't want to do something too difficult.
