“Nice walk and views”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 10, 2014

It is a nice and easy walk. We set off early and got to the top around 8AM (it took us 1h 20min) and enjoyed a beautiful view on Little Adam's Peak for like an hour before other tourists got there. With a hand-drawn map we got in our hotel, it is not that hard to find the way without a guide although there is one tricky point. It is a path in tea plantations behind a bridge and a waterfall - you need to take a little pathway on the LEFT! It goes up a steep hill. We hesitated here for a while and 2 locals were telling us to take the other way - the wrong way! So make sure not to listen to them:)

“Nice trek, guide recommended”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2014

Walking on the railroad tracks until the small station is fine, but after there ask a local to guide you for 500 LKR since it's far from obvious how to get there. Awesome view once you're up, bring something to drink and have a picnic you'll late forget!

“Great views and interesting walk”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2014

The view from Ella Rock is worth the climb (which is not so bad), and it is free! Go early, take your breakfast and sit and enjoy.

“Nice walk”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 1, 2014

Approx. 3 hours go and back, along the railway, in the fields and in the forest. The final ascent is pretty sportive but is doable by anybody with a good condition. Good shoes are advisable. Must be difficult when rainy.
