#1 of 279 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.

  • By the standards of other climbs in Sri Lanka, the trek to the top is more than manageable and the views when you get there are well worth the effort. Make sure you get some freshly squeezed lime...  more »
  • Lovely views of Ella Rock and surrounding mountains. Took about 30 - 45 minutes to get to the top and the views were well worth it. Lots of coconut sellers along the way.  more »

  • Beautiful and relatively easy walk although is quite hilly at the end, so try to do it when is not too hot. This area it seems more used to tourists so people ask you to take pics of them and then money. You can reach the base easily walking from the center of Ella. Less than five minutes away from where the walk starts you can find the path to the Nine Arches Bridge.
  • Absolutely stunning views! Very easy access to the too, first bit is quite touristy even early in the morning. I person would recommend go to the other too, you need to go down again - just follow the path at the top of the hill, and then reach another. Magic!
