The Little Adam`s Peak, also known as ‘Punchi Sri Pada’ is situated at the height of 1141 meters and is one of the favourite spots for hiking among the travellers. The Little Adam’s peak got its name from the Adam’s peak, which is Sri Lanka’s holy mountain, due to the similarity of its shape. The path leading to the peak is marked and is easy to find. Once you set on the trail, you will pass through lush green tea plantations, paddy fields and as you move up, the landscape becomes more scenic. Once you reach the top, you will see a 360-degree panoramic view of the picturesque surroundings. The hike is fairly easy and can be undertaken by the entire family. You will meet a lot of follow hikers along the way. Do not forget to carry a bottle of water and a hat along with you.

  • Easy to climb and you can get a good view. Best for sunrise ⛅, it will take about 30 through walking path. You have steps most of the part.

  • Great place to have a good view on the mountains and valleys around. The last part to the top is by stairs. All in all it is medium difficulty in my opinion and a great choice for everyone who don't want to go up to Ella Rock (like me). You can combine the trip with a visit to the Nine Arch Bridge.

  • View ... Yeah sooo majestic... If u could reach the top around 05.30 might able to experience the sun looming over the mountains 🤘near to the top you could have a taste of real hike...

  • This is a pretty cool walk up a mountain. It starts of as a gradual hill through tea plantations and then gets steeper and steeper. First with a stack of steps and then climbing on a rock and dirt track. Good views from the top especially if there is no rain or mist around. It's a medium level climb.

  • A good walk from Ella town. Should be done early morning or late afternoon. Good views from top. But really no comparison with Adam' Peak to name it Little Adam's Peak (may be it was done to attract tourusts)
