We walked there easily from Ella. It's a nice walk and it's free ;-) Just one thing: even though it's not cloudy and the sun is shining, don't go for this walk without rain equipment! Weather can change upthere in a matter of seconds and there's no proper shelter where you can stay until the rain stops :)

The walk from town is not rough enough, the climbing is really easy, around 10 minutes. It's free entrance and you get to see whole Ella and on a clear day the ocean!

Should be sign posted a little better. Other than that it offers very good views. Should also offer a little explanation of the ritual site at the top.

A must do. It is a short climb but the view is 360. Very nice. As most climbs in Sri Lanka, do it in the morning to have the highest change for clear views.

Steps to the top but not near as many as Adam's peak itself :-) Stunning views from the top looking over Ella rock Worth the walk.

This is a lovely short (around 2 hours return trip) trek in the nearby mountains of Ella. The views are incredible whether it gets very misty or not. But go early to get the best views before the thick mist sets in- and take a rain coat!

Our driver dropped us at the Start Point. Else walking along the main road in Ella would lead to the Start Point. An easy hike up to the peak and beautiful view awaits you.

It's a short, not so difficult trek through tea plantations and the woods. The views are good with the winding roads, few hillside hotels and the Ella Valley. I wouldn't say its anything spectacular but worth one visit while you're in Ella.
