It's only 2 kms to the top, not sure when they start counting. A nice walk and except for the steps not too difficult.

Unlike its counterpart, Ella Rock, Little Adams Rock is an easier climb. There are also a few signs to guide you to the right direction. Also there are actual steps to assist with your climb.Once you're on top the views are amazing. Especially of Ella' s Rock. From the top, you get a sense of appreciation of Ella Rock if... More

It is a "must see" place when one is visiting Sri Lanka. It doesn't take much effort to climb to the top and it is free of charge and the nature is absolutely stunning.

We climbed Little Adams peak during afternoon, as we didn't feel like waking up for sunrise.. I'm not sure if it makes so much difference if you are an early bird or aiming for the afternoon / sunset - Views are still breathtaking! Easy walk up and down, we opted to get a cooled wine bottle from the town and... More

Nice easy walk from Ella along the Passara Road to the garden centre, through the garden centre and tea plantations. It took us just under one hour from Ella’s Edge resort. Very good views of Ella Rock and down into the lowlands. We stopped for dinner at the 98 Acres Resort on the way back and had a great meal.... More

A lot of people in our group found this hike more strenuous than Ella Rock because of the amount of steep steps, although the actual distance is much less. And the hike itself is not as varied or beautiful as Ella Rock. Nevertheless, the view at the top is worth it! Beware the children en route who ask you for... More

A beautiful walk through tea plantations and rewarded with stunning 360 degree views. Note the last part has some steps so would be unsuitable for those who cant manage too many steps.

We got to the peak by 6am and were rewarded with a fantastic sunrise. Climb was not hard and it was easy to find the place as well. Once you are at the top you get a 360 degree view no can even see the Ravana falls. Lovely view at the Ella rock as well. Must be a bit tricky... More
