Little Adam's Peak, Ella

4.7
#1 of 291 in Parks in Sri Lanka
Go for a quick hike to the top of Little Adam's Peak, an easy walk from downtown Ella in a lush picturesque setting. The mountain’s name comes from the comparison with its similarly shaped but much larger counterpart, the massive Adam’s Peak in central Sri Lanka. Enjoy the the easy going, 45-minute trek to the summit, admiring views of verdant tea plantations along the way. When you reach the top, you’ll be rewarded with panoramic views of the rolling green hills and valleys below.

  • One of the best place in Sri Lanka. Should try in the morning so that you will be able to feel the nature with a clear view. Best place to inhale purest air ❤️  more »
  • It is a little exhausting to go to the top, but the path itself is very easy. And sou get rewarded with such a nice view! Also they were a lit of cute puppies. We really had a good time and can totall...  more »
  • Hike about 2 hours without rushing into the middle of the tea plantations pretty easy except at the end where there are a lot of steps. Arriving at the top you have a very nice view at 360 degrees. There's even a Tyrolean descent for $20 for amateurs. I advise you to do this hike if you pass in the corner.

  • Awesome place with view - start at 98 Acres resort and walk up (about 20min to the peak). Most people stops here and return back but you could keep walking the track to the other peak to shake off the crowd (5min?)
  • If you want to enjoy a beautiful sunset looking at the lush green of the cloud forests and the tea plantations in Ella without hiking for hours Little Adam's Peak is the right choice for you! It has a very nice view and i love this place very much
  • Very nice spot with a very easy climb. From Ella city center you will walk 30-40 minutes. Go early or late to avoid tourist crowds and take a headlamp with you since there will be no light. The path is nice through tea plantations and hills. A must-do in Ella for sure!
  • Nice little walk from Ella to Little Adams Peak, with tea plantations on either side. Not a tough walk, but steep steps to get to the peak itself. Great view from up top. Would recommend walking to Nine Arch Bridge after you come to the peak and walk along the rails back to Ella station.
  • Scenery hill top. It’s not a very difficult hike. You can experience an amazing view from its viewpoint.
