Ella rock is situated in front of the Little Adam's peak mountain in Ella, Sri Lanka. Ella city is the most popular travel destination among the foreigners. I have climbed Ella rock and it was really a amazing experience for rock climbers. We could see the whole area such as Namunukula, Wellawaya, Rawana waterfal, caves and tunnels etc.

Beautiful stunning view and walks through tea plantations and various forests. Be awared, you might get lost a bit but you will probably have some Sri Lankan guys that will try to guide you throughout your hike, expecting some money in return.

I was feeling a bit tired but mustered up the energy for this hike and was not disappointed. It was hard to find the way and we ended up asking someone at one junction which of course led to him wanting to guide us but we made it clear that we preferred to do it on our own and he... More

We started from Ella train station and followed the tracks for about 20-30 minutes before you reach the next station. This is where our guide book was no longer much use to us! After you cross the small bridge over the water, the book told us to take the dirt track to the left which we did. After climbing a... More

My friend & I tried to do this without a guide but could not find any signage & it can be quite confusing when you get to the base & see a maze of pathways ( we learnt the hard way that they all indeed lead to the same place but are almost deliberately set out to cause you to... More

Great views, and a long hard walk. However some of the local villagers are operating an unusual scam where they make it hard to find the path and then offer to guide you. To avoid this you could try downloading the excellent Sri Lanka map app which has the footpath marked

The walk on the Ella Rock is nice and not specially hard. Top View is excellent. You can see Little Adam's Peak among others. At the place you leave railroad and join the hill path you may meet few local people. They will try to guide you what is somehow nice but be aware. We had got as a company... More

Enjoyed the walk from our hotel to Ella rock along the railway line. Make sure you get advice on the best time to go, as when we reached the top, it was completely cloudy. We somehow managed to “acquire” a guide, who expected money at the end, which we expected, but he did not make it clear he was a... More

Even with good map is easy to miss the right track. Hundreds of different tracks can be easily missed, and you can finish going in circles and wondering around. With a proper guide you can make in up and down in Ella in 2 hours. Easily. It is worth every drop of sweat when you drink fresh coconut on the... More

Started from Ella Railway Station. If you don't want to buy somethings (foods etc) start from Kital Ella Railway station. because it takes 20 minutes to reach kital ella. you will see a waterfall from your left side. you will cross the metal bridge and there is a "Bo" tree and go down. there is a small shop turn left,...
