OMG, I’m pretty sure it was the exact same man who saved my friends and I when we were trying to climb it! Such a beautiful place 🙂

We had a great time climbing Ella Rock but have some recommendations for other visitors.
1) look online for a proper route. We used a very helpful blog caled Atlas and Boots which was very accurate. We also downloaded an app called map me which...More
A great place to hike but start early as possible as it is a hot and steep climb, especially towards the top. We got told the wrong way by a local and then got lost. Out of nowhere a different local appeared and helped us...More
There’s a couple of men working the route telling tourists they have taken a wrong turn then leading them a different way (albeit still to the top) and insisting on payment (5000-/).
This nearly happened to us however we firmly said we would find our...More
Don't get a guide for this, you can easily do this hike alone. You must do this hike when you are in Ella! Although I would not recommend this hike with small kids or kids over 8 years old who are very whiny. Some tips:...More
Being moderately fit will help, but by hiking standards I think this is probably deemed an easy to moderate climb. The varying vistas along the way plus the spectacular view at the top make it a 'must do' hike. The heat makes it a bit...More

Tricky Question ,if they are use to climbing yes ,but will need plenty of help from others or each other ,if you climb slowly from start and take plenty of rest it can be done ,recommend to take a train ride to near ella rock and proceed ,as it will take some walking along the rail tracks to go there (it will not be good start for a climb )
Take Udarata manike from ella 06 39 or podi manike 09 23 from ella and get off kithal ella station , and if you can take back the goods train 13 15 back to ella .
it will reduce some time walking in train tracks
