Awesome things to do in Ella, Sri Lanka

Climb up little Adam’s peak


This little nephew of Adam’s Peak is a far more easy climb. Nevertheless, the view is still a spectacular one. You can easily walk to the top within one hour. Once you’re on top you’ll get the chance to relax and talk with other travelers. If you’re searching for a more private place then walk to the next hill. There’s not an actual path but you can get there with a bit of climbing.

Walk along the rails on the Nine Arch Bridge in Ella

A Google Images world-famous bridge but though so quiet and undiscovered. Get a drink up the hills in the Nine Arch Cafe which probably gives you the best view. It’s 30 meters or 99 feet high and the guards allow you to walk along the rails. Even through the tunnel if you like to.

Enjoy the endless tea field views

Everywhere tea plantations with smiling women picking tea leaves. The tea leaf plants give the entire countryside a unique look. The patterns formed by the thousands of planted bushes stretching into the distance is a very special sight.

Get a fresh shower at the Ravana waterfall

Ravana Falls is another must visit in Ella. Hill country of Sri Lanka is quite popular for beautiful waterfalls and Ravana Falls is right at the top. The falls are quite impressive and 25 m high waterfall, and you can climb over some of the rocks to get a closer look. If you love water and wanna have some splash time, enjoying some hours in the water fall, then this is the place in Ella. You can spend sometime swimming, but be safe as the rocks are slippery.

Hike up to the top of Ella Rock

f you find Little Adam’s peak to easy to hike than get up early and hike to the top of Ella Rock. It takes 2 hours to hike from bottom to top. It can be done with your guide or on your own but make sure you got the directions from someone you trust, like your guesthouse manager.
