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.

  • We decided not to walk up for the sunrise but instead about 10am, was very hot. We'll worth the slog to the top although quite busy, take water with you. The views are fab right down the Ella gap.  more »

  • The walk took us 1 hr from the city centre. It was easy and smooth well signed path. The 360 view is amazing especially during sunrise. Leave your hotel and start to walk around 5am. This is totally free and u suggest everyone tries this.
  • Very nice view. Come here for sunrise - don't be late. The sun rises very quickly at the equator! I recommend the second peak. A bit crowded, but still very much worth it.
