A fairly simple hike up to a great viewpoint of the valley. The only tricky part is when to turn left leave the RR tracks, but there will be someone to ask for help.

just after the tea plantations Take the non-steps route that will take you about the same amount of time but will reveal a bit more scenery. Nice 2 hours roundtrip from Ella.

Great short hike. 30 mins up you can see the whole valley btw there is a fantastic green tea factory visible from here that you can walk to.

Pleasant gentle climb past tea plantations and a small cafe over-looking Ella gap partway up. Well worth going up on a clear day for the stunning views.

Steep steps and a track to the very top. Looked up from the bottom and thought: "Good God! At my age?" but it's easier than it looks.

It's "only" a hill but you have a really marvelous view from it. We also climbed up (there are stairs) a second time because we expected an additional bonus being there druing sunrise and we really weren't disappointed!

The walk to Adams peak is beautiful. You leave from the main town of Ella, go through the gates at the end of the road to start the walk.
