(4.7/5 based on 2,800+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Walk up from Ella is lovely. Great views over tea plantations & other mountains. When you have reached the top the views are just stunning. If it's not misty, as it was when we got there. But as one side clears the other mists over. So be sure to stay long enough to all the way around. You can see top of Ella, Ella rock, tea plantations etc. Just great. 👍
  • A fabulous view. Awesome hike to the top.. Cool and misty surroundings.. A must visit place.. Cheers.!!
  • Beautiful 360 degree view. Easy hike (60 minutes up and down with small breaks) 90 minutes to hang out at the two different peaks at the top.
  • Its free and public which seems to be a rare thing around here. An easy walk appropriate for families and the views from the top are incredible. You can either take the stairs or a smaller rockier dirtier ascent along a path through the bush. Most people suggest early morning before the clouds roll in but sitting at the top of the Mountain above the clouds is more magical. As it is the clouds move fast so you'll always get a view.
  • Easy to get there. Nice path thru the tea plantations. Great view.
