I had done this climb the day after I had done Ravana cave and Ella rock so I was a little tired. I felt this climb was a little harder than Ella rock. The entrance to this rock is through a tea garden so that was nice. There are two major peaks. The first one is easier. The second one... More

If you don't have long in Ella or don't fancy the steep walk up Ella Rock then definitely visit Little Adam's Peak. The views from the top are still impressive and the walk itself is mainly just a relaxing stroll through tea plantations. On the way down there are a number of signs to the 98 Acres Resort, where you... More

The hike is pretty much easy. There are several peaks among this mountain range and you can visit all of them. Most visitors hike only upto the 2nd peak. But there is this third peak with no visitors at all most of the time and if you seek some real quiet time, hike to the 3rd peak as well. While... More

Loved the walk through tea plantations and up the summit. Wonderful views from the top! Tropical downpour added to the experience.

After climbing Ella Rock the day before the climb to Little Adam's Peak was much easier. After a walk along the path you get to a flight of steps with approx. over 300 hundred steps which we counted on our way down. The view at the top is lovely overlooking all the beautiful places in the area. The only disappointing... More

Not as good as the walk to Ella Rock but easier and still a great view. Was very windy up the top and we got filthy but was fun.

We were told it would take two hours to ascend and descent, but in reality it took just over an hour. Pretty gentle climb, following by breathtaking panoramic views - well worth it!

When you get to the top this is actually a very good viewpoint and the ascent is very straightforward. The approach is up the hill from Ella and along a wide and even track taking you through some pleasant tea plantations on the hillside. The final walk up to the summit is on a more uneven path but this is... More

It was nice for a quick, quiet walk but do not expect too much. The views of the local area are great and it is an easy walk for those who do not like walking to much.
