  • The way to the mountain is very beautiful. When you arrive at the stairs I recommend the anyway way left to go, and the alternate trail above consequences. The view is much better and the way is more beautiful than this concrete stairs. Once at the top, it's beautiful. + Small Tip: peak, a man in a small hut sold at an intersection on the road to the Little Adams "fresh juices". It's worth much down there to recover and a super tasty and fresh juices from a coconut to drink. Better than most other juices!

  • Climbing little adam's peak provides you an excellent view for ella rock and the surrounding mountains. Easy to climb with no guide need. Worth it 
  • A good climb, many steps, so get ready. Beautiful, high, kinds of chic. The most tempting that is within walking distance of Ella. Tuk-tuk ride from our hotel (and we're not in the middle of Ella, and on the hill opposite to Ella rock) 400 rupees to one side. From landing to go 30 minutes max, the beautiful scenery will significantly reduce temporary feeling.
