This is a must visit if your in Ella. The walk down the tracks is a great experience and the sight from the area is breathtaking. It’s a great location for photography lovers with some good sights for picture taking.

Yes, there are lots of guest houses on the hill and a few villas. I believe one of them is called nine arch view.
