Little Adam's Peak & Ella Rock

Sri Lanka is liberally endowed with beautiful views, and Ella has one of the best. The sleepy village is nestled in a valley peering straight through Ella Gap to the plain nearly 1000m below, and across to the coast where, on a clear night, you can see the Great Basses lighthouse. And as if the views weren’t enough, Ella is surrounded by hills perfect for walks through tea plantations to temples and waterfalls. Ella only received electricity in 1984. (from Lonely Planet)

Little Adam's Peak

Little Adam's Peak is 1,141 meters high pyramidal rock in southeast part of Sri Lanka's highlands. It is named after famous holy mountain Adam's Peak, because of its similar shape. Climbing to the top of the little brother is much easier much less crowded. Enjoy the beautiful views over endless valleys, of tea plantations and waterfalls.

View from Ella Rock

Walk up to Ella's Rock, about 2 hours along the railway track and through the tea plantations, for stunning views across the countryside. The first 1.5km is along the railway track itself so keep an ear out for oncoming trains although they travel so slowly you'll have plenty of time to get out of the way.
Take a walk through the tea plantations to Little Adam's Peak south-east of the town centre, and about 45 minutes away.
