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.

  • It was about 2 hours hike up and down. We had to park on the road at the entrance to 98 acres hotel and walk from there. We went early in the morning around 6.30 am. Ideal time as weather is cooler...  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.
