Ella Rock

Hiking Ella Rock is definitely for slightly more experienced hikers or at least for the more adventurous as the whole hike takes about four 4 hours. When visiting Sri Lanka, you must watch the sunrise from a mountain top at least once, there is no better place, which doesn’t require you to use too much effort, and that is Ella Rock. On your hike you will walk past tea plantations, railway lines, a small eucalyptus forest till you finally make it to the cleared summit, where you can enjoy the stunning views. From the top, you will get a panoramic view of Ella Gap and Little Adam’s Peak, as well as Ella town. It is an indescribable feeling watching the sky change colour from a deep purple to a pinkish-orange, especially for early birds as they catch the sunrise from the peaks – a recommended experience for those in Ella.
