Ella Rock, Ella Reviews

  • A great hike and worth it for the views from the top (although we may have got lucky with the weather!). It's definitely doable without a guide, but read some of the blogs in detail before you go, which have helpful tips for finding the route. When we went, there were loads of groups either going up or coming down, so it's fairly easy to tell when you're going the right way by following them.

  • Amazing views. Truly enjoyable trek. Took me an my mates about 6 hours for the climb and back from near the Ella railway station. (other hikers were faster than us, we spent a lot of time enjoying the views and snapping pics. ) Best if you climb in the morning and be mindful about the weather. Towards the evening, fog could shut off the view below from the top. Trial is considered to be easy. Wear shoes

  • One of first successful treks. We started at 6 am in the morning. It was a bit cold yet sunny. We went through the railway tracks and started climbing. It was a 3 hour trek and wasn't easy for me. I took several breaks during steep climbs. You definitely carry water, hiking shoes and bug repellents. But the top of Ella rock was beautiful. It was an awesome experience. You seem to be surrounded by green mountains and definitely feel on the top of the world. Must do this. There will be other tourists who will greet you and help you out as well. I went in October. And the weather was super nice then.

  • The view is amazing. The climb is a bit tough towards the end. Make sure u have shoes with a good grip. There is only one shop to buy water or food so make sure u come prepared for the climb. Takes about 2 hours.

  • Popular hike offering dramatic views from the mountain's peak, a notable place to watch the sunrise. Ella in Sri Lanka is beautiful, they said. ‘The closest thing to an English country village’ and the perfect place to slow down, we’d read. I dolefully thought of this when darting across the thundering traffic to dodge yet another taxi driver insisting on taking me somewhere I didn’t want to go. The main street, stacked with milkshake huts and charm-free cafes, is a loud and roiling stretch of conveniences set up for the tourist alone.
