The trip up Little Adam's Peak was 3,7 km from Ella town. Most part was easy going with only a few flights of stairs towards the top. It was very hot and we soon discovered that 1 liter of water between the two of us, wasn't really sufficient. But there are stalls selling water up to a 500 meters before... More

Nice for a little walk. It's not difficult and you don't need to be in perfect shape to do it. Nature is just so beautiful that takes your breath away.

Nice walk and surely manageable for 6 and 8 year olds. Great view. It seems that everybody visiting Ella is doing the same hike, so you won't be walking alone. Welcome to mass turism in Sri Lanka. When returning, enjoy a cold and easily-but well-deserved- beer (with a splendid atmosphere) at Bar 98.

We walked this Peak with 3 kids. A bit hot, as there is no shade during the walk. We made it to all 3 tops and the smallest kid (4 years) loved to climb the way up. Down it was getting really hot.

One of the best view's I've gotten in Sri Lanka, for very little effort. I climbed up with a German family including an elderly lady. I would say that the view from here is better than that of the Ella Rock, and most certainly Lipton's seat.

Easy hike up with a nice view. You can also do the hike with children as it is not far. I would prefer this hike over Ella Rock as the view is pretty much the same.

Little Adams peak is really near to Ella "city" center, you can take tuktuk for 150-200rup. to flower garden and walk from there - it's 15-20min walk to the top. There is shop with coconuts and fruit on the way up... View is great for sunset, but for sunrise go on Ella's rock

Interesting and not too difficult walk. Direct walk from Ella central through tea estates with great views of the area. Had lunch on the way back with a slight detour at 98 acres resort which was well worth the visit. Little Adam's Peak really should be a must do when visiting Ella to get a feel for the area.

Easy walk through tea plantations. The view at the top is nice, but cannot beat Lipton's seat in Haputale. In my opinion Ella is a bit overrated by all the travel books. It is really touristy. In the hills you can find much more authentic towns like Hatton or Haputale.

Nice easy walk up to the Peak which takes around 30 minutes. Once at the top the view is really nice over Ella gap to Ella rock. If you have the time and/or energy I would recommend Ella rock instead of this peak although the view across to ella rock from little adams peak is pretty nice
