LITTLE ADAM'S PEAK - ELLA - SRI LANKA

LITTLE ADAM'S PEAK - ELLA - SRI LANKA

One of the best ways to spend a morning in Ella is to tackle the beautiful short walk up to the top of Little Adam's Peak, a pyramid-shaped rock which stands opposite the far larger Ella Rock and offers marvelous views out over the hills The walk makes a very pleasant morning's excursion, and is fairly gentle and largely flat, apart from a small amount of climbing near the end. Count on around two hours return and go as early as possible before the clouds set in. To begin the walk, head down the Passara Road for 1km, passing pine woods to your left. Just past the 1km marker the road turns sharp left by a garden centre; take the path that goes off the right-hand side of the road, straight ahead through beautiful tea plantations. Follow this path for 500m, ignoring the branch on your right which descends to a ramshackle tea pickers' village below Keep left, following the path, with increasingly fine views to Ella Rock opposite and the New Bourg Tea Factory in the other direction. After another 500m you reach a point where two tracks go off on the right close to one another. Take the second track (past the green gate), and follow it for the final kilometer up to the top of Little Adam's Peak - the path weaves around the back of the peak and zigzags up to the summit, from where there are marvelous views of Ella Rock, Ella Gap and the very top of the Rawana Ella Falls. If you fancy a more taxing hike, Ella Rock itself makes a good spot to aim for. There are various routes up, though they can become impassable during bad weather, so ask for directions and advice at your guest house before setting out. The usual route starts by following the railway line south of Ella for a couple of kilometers, passing right by the top of the Little Rawana Ella Falls, a small but eye-catching cascade, before striking up towards the summit. Take food, water and good footwear, and count on about four hours for the return trip - and take care in wet weather, when tracks can get slippery.

    "We are an older couple celebrating a lot of years of marriage (and hiking) in Sri Lanka in February this year, for two weeks, and three days in the Maldives. Although we love to drive, we chose to go with a driver-guide, after planning the trip completely independently. (It turned out he might help us in the planning and selection of hotels, we own). The main advantage is reaching the sites, some of which are tired, refreshed after someone else used to bad roads, with bad signage - If you are i..." Sam

He is clearly a very skilled driver. He is particularly knowledgeable about the history of the many places we visited. We were pleased we had Cyril as our driver.
