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.

  • Great views all the way! You see tea plantation everywhere, other random plants, dwellings dotted around the moutain slopes, you can hear cows moo-ing as you walk along the path and hens casually walk...  more »
  • Very enjoyable walk with stunning views of Ella Rock. We also walked past the Buddha to the other viewing point. Some small challenging parts but we were fine in our running shoes. Afterwards we kept ...  more »
  • We arrived on the top shortly before rain came, so there were some clouds and fog, but anyway the view was still breathtaking! Absolutely worth the climb.  more »

  • If you are in to hike, this is place to be. And it's consist of 5 little ADVENTUROUS mountains all together. Why not try to climb them all? This Little Adam's peak is lower in height compared to the Ella rock which is also in Ella. The hike to the top is quite REFRESHING! You can have a 360 degree view from the mountain top, watch the picturesque sun rise and it is AMAZING! At night till the breaking dawn it is quite freezing up there. In the morning hike, sometimes a fellow dog guide might walk with you : )
  • Other than the food, this was my favorite part of the trip. The hike was easy and it goes through wonderful tea plantations. The view at the top is phenomenal and you get a great view of Ella Rock. The 9-arch bridge is nearby, so you can do that after. I loved eating and having a beer at 98 Acres after too!
  • 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. 👍
  • Very easy climb. Nice views at the top. Perfect activity for people who want to go for a walk but don't want to do something too difficult.
  • A great view, but a disappointing hike. Stairs for a large part of the way. But because of this easily accessible for families.
