we start the hike around 5.30 and it was an easy way up ( we traveled with a 2 year old toddler )
you can get a three-wheeler for the first 200 mtrs. they will charge you around 300 LKR

Just before the hike starts at the very beginning there is a cafe and bar offering very good food and also a clean toilet facility for 50 LKR.

Once you reach the top there are three peeks . one with Buddha statue and two more . you can reach two with kids but not the third. The views are amazing and you could spend two - three hours easily just without doing anything but staring at the picture square views.

Wait for sun rise for best pictures.

Great little hike. Only took about 25 mins to get up. We did it in the middle of the day and the heat was fine. Plenty of kids doing it when we did it. Would recommend doing it the day prior to doing Ella Rock as you can be quite sore after Ella Rock haha

Short hike to the peak, lots of concrete/stone steps to make the walk up easier. Great views, we went in the morning and it's wasn't crowded. No entrance fee to go up to the Peak. There are optional paid activities at the peak, including zip line and absailing.

Trek up the Little Adam’s Peak, Ella

One of the prettiest spots and most popular treks in Ella is up the Little Adam’s Peak. However, we came across an unexpected hazard. When we reached the point where the zipline takes off, we saw a sign posted which said, “drone cameras can trigger a bee attack.” There were no drone cameras evident, but very soon there was a bee attack. While we escaped, my driver waiting below said that about 20 people had to be taken to the hospital. I believe the authorities need to take care of this. If there are bees in the vicinity of this very popular spot and inclined to attack visitors, something must be done as a whole vacation can get ruined if one gets caught in a bee attack. Till this is sorted out, the literature should also give some guidelines for persons on how to avoid the bee attack and how to respond in case of one. One important thing I learnt by going through Google/Bing is that you never swat or try to fend off the bees but run as fast as you can and look for shelter. In spite of the beautiful trek, the rating reflects the hazard which the tourists were subjected to.

Not over strenuous but you do need some appropriate footware. Its not flip flop territory. When you are almost at the summit the steps stop and you have to clmber over rough rocks to make the final ascent. Be prepared. It is not difficult but it is not a footpath walkway. When you get to the top the views are stunning and well worth the effort. If you can afford it go to the cafe at 98 acres and look at the view back t little Adams peak, makes it all worthwhile

It was about 2 hours hike up and down. We had to park on the road at the entrance to 98 acres hotel and walk from there. We went early in the morning around 6.30 am. Ideal time as weather is cooler and nice for photography.

Trailing through the picturesque premises of 98 Acres Resort is the Little Adams Peak. From the top one could get a 360 degrees view of the whole terrific mountain terrain surrounding the Ella valley. Entry to the premises is free of charge. There is a plenty of recreational activities such as Flying Fox, Air rifling, archery and ACT and so on. All are being operated at high standards yet very reasonable rates by the resort itself. Non-alcoholic drinks are also available at the kiosk located halfway the beautiful hike.

The walk up to Little Adam’s Peak is doable by most people although those with mobility issues might give this one a pass. Easy flat first bit through tea plantation fields up to the zip line company office (where there are very clean toilets). Then the track gets more difficult and some scrambling is required. Over 300 steps/stairs and then the scrambling up to the top. However, the view is well worth the hike and the exercise is great for the legs and lungs. Once at the top you can go further but it is more difficult with a path that requires good strength and endurance. Total time to go up would be about an hour depending on your level of fitness. A must do!

It begins in quite an easy incline and there are lots of families with young kids enjoying the walk. Once you reach the top though there are three other peaks which you can walk to and the second of them is quite the challenge.

Some amazing opportunities for photos and for meeting people from other countries. My wife and I offered to take a photo for a couple of different people and now we are Instagram friends 😄

Arrived by car at 5:20 and walked using mobile phone light. First part was very easy and steady, the last few minutes were steeper but, by then, it was light enough not to be a problem. There were a lovely range of hues as the minutes passed. Plenty of time to move around (there are a few spots to choose from at the top), take heaps of photos and enjoy sunrise.
