No guide is necessary for this as it is signposted from the bottom of the town with a right turn off the road after a few minutes walk. The entire trip will not take... More

Compared to the steep Ellas Rock this one is also suitable for unexperienced hikers and a nice little trek. You can reach it easy starting in Ella main road, no need for TukTuk to take you. It starts quite easy and then switched to stairs. Our view from the top was a bit covered by clouds all around us, but... More

Well worth the short hike from town. Unfortunately we didn't have great weather to appreciate the view from the top but the scenery was beautiful climbing up. A good path to follow and an easy climb with steps to follow in the steeper regions.

A lovely walk through the tea plantations brings you to this viewing point. Do take the time to stop and see the beads and jewellery sold by the enterprising young lady on the way to the top.

Not sure you can be here by night, but we were with some locals and had a great time. A bit of a climb, but rewarding and absolutely nothing compared to the real Adam's Peak.

We were driven to the start of the climb. The climb was relatively easy, a few steep steps but little rests to enjoy the view along the way made for a very pleasant climb. Seeing Silky Oaks (Grevillea Grandis) on the way up was a special delight for us Aussies.

This mountain is seen from 98 Acres where we stayed. It is well worth walking up the mountain at approximately 6 a.m. to see the sunrise. The mountain is only about 300 steps so not too bad a climb.

It is a long way up but so worth it for the fabulous views you get at the top. You climb through the tea plantations up so may steps, some a little steep, but once at the top the 360 degree view is amazing.

We did the Mini Admas Peak hike early in the morning and took only one hour total for the hike. The last bit of the hike had steep steps and was a bit difficult. The view from the top is fascinating and nothing much except the view. Enjoyed the hike and the view.
