Little Adam's Peak Reviews & Ratings

  • The sunset from the top and Stunning 360 degree views will blow your mind! Experienced a great hike after long time in Ella. This hike took us about 3 hours totally. I think its fairly easy hike, path is marked by signs so its very easy to find. You have to walk through beautiful lush green tea plantations which is perfect for photos. If you have a plan to visit there, go early in the morning other wise it will quite hot, Take plenty of water and wear comfortable shoes. Also you will meet cute puppies at the top. If you can bring up some food and water for the dogs that would make a real difference since they can’t find foods from top of mountain. Highly recommend this as a must do hike in Ella, you would absolutely love the experience. Please make sure to protect the beautiful environment, without throwing plastic bottle and food wrappers here and there. Cheers !!

  • A nice get away from the busy and restless day to day life. It's an ideal place for hikers and nature lovers. It is located in a mountain range where you can find a foot path and a clear way to climb to the top. The view on the top is nothing but magical.

  • A small hike to a wonderful destination. Breath taking view. Anyone can get to the summit pretty easily. The path has stairs to a certain distance..

  • This is one other major destination of a hiker, believe me people this place is mind blowing with it's beauty. It is obvious, the hike was little grueling, but I must say it was fun and nice experience journey. And the tiredness intently fade away by the beatific view by the peak. As the first view point at the peak you can stop the journey, but there is further more you can go through the peak. It's up to you guys. From my view why don't you try that. ;-) You are almost there to enjoy the beauty. You should visit there and just have nice experience. Enjoy the nature. Just leave a footprints and collect wonderful memory line.

  • Ella is a famous hiking hotspot, a region known for its spectacular mountain ranges, tea plantations, waterfalls and hiking trails. f you want to enjoy some of the best views without needing to hike for hours, the popular Little Adam’s Peak is the perfect trek. The trail to Little Adam’s peak is pretty easy (a guide is not necessary) and takes approximately 20/40 minutes one way, depending on how fast you walk (and how many photos you take 😃). You have reached the top when you see a white statue of Buddha.
