    Scaling New Heights: Discovering the Breathtaking Views of Little Peaks Adam in Kandy
    If you're looking for a fun and easy climbing adventure in Kandy, then Little Peaks Adam is definitely worth checking out. The climb takes about 30 minutes and is relatively easy, but you'll want to wear good sneakers to ensure a steady grip on the rocks. There are three tops to the climb, with the last one being a bit more challenging to reach, but the incredible views of the valley and mountains in front of you make it all worth it. One of the best things about Little Peaks Adam is its location. The main entrance to the climb is only a 15-minute walk from Kandy village, making it easy to access and a great way to spend an afternoon. And once you reach the top, you'll be rewarded with panoramic views that will take your breath away. Overall, I highly recommend Little Peaks Adam for anyone looking for a fun and rewarding outdoor adventure in Kandy. The climb is easy enough for most people to enjoy, but still challenging enough to make you feel accomplished when you reach the top. And the views are simply stunning, making it an unforgettable experience.

    Trail that helped burn my calories
    Eager to see what the "Little Adams peak" is like, I had to attempt the climb twice as in the first attempt somewhere halfway a sudden heavy downpour disrupted the journey. I had to hurriedly retreat to Flying Ravana ticketing centre for refuge. The thunderstorm lasted for about an hour and I gave up the idea of climbing and came to the pool club to spend the rest of the time. However, after the rain ceased the haze or the mist passed off and as there was some time to dusk, I decided to get back on the trail once again. This time I was well passed at least three quarters of the journey when the hell broke loose again drenching me severely. There was no shelter or a canopy for shade and the only option was to proceed until I reached the summit. Luckily for me there was no thunder or lightning. It was hazy at the beginning but with the ceasing of the rain it began to clear off, giving me good visibility of the surrounding mountain ranges and the distance water falls including the upper segment of "Ravana falls". My journey was well worth as the panoramic views were extremely beautiful. I had the best view of Ella gap and beyond. Up there I could not find any clue to why it is called little Adams peak, but there must be some legend behind it.

    Easy walk - amazing views
    Easy climb to the top mostly steps, we did it at 6am & it was nice & cool. Only took 30 minutes with little stops. Amazing views at the top - the sun had just come up & there was a pretty golden glow. Part of the walk is through a tea plantation. We parked our scooter at the start of the walk (next to Ravana Pool Club) paid 50 rupees. Would defiantly recommend.

    Tourist climb at Ella, sunny with stairs
    It's encircled by taller hills so you don't get a long distance view, but it's a ticklist essential. It now has a cafe selling ice cream, and a zip wire descent from just above the shop back down to the new pool. At the start there is also Ellas Swing, an Instagram photo op for girls to wear a billowing red dress in a giant swing that perhaps surprisingly doesn't overhang a drop. To save your legs for the climb up the steps you can cheat and dive in a tuk tuk to get up to the entrance. Outside you may find water and king coconut to drink. On the climb you'll find the odd beggar but mostly stalls selling refreshments. It's very much a youngsters' scene now. Go out of season to avoid being pressured on the steps. Bring sunglasses and wide brimmed hat as no shade anywhere.

    Easy hike with great views - plus a fabulous lunch opportunity
    A fairly easy hike with some great views. Well worth taking the time to stop at the 98 Acres Resort & Spa for lunch or a drink. Whilst it is a very posh resort, it has a bar and a restaurant a couple of hundred yards apart, both of which serve great food and drinks relatively cheaply.

    Nice trekking experience
    A 10-minute walk would lead you from the main road to the path leading to the peak. Wear sports shoes and hat, and bring a bottle of water. Some parts of the path can be tricky but can be managed. There is no shade at the top. View from the top is beautiful on a clear day.

    Decent hike for amazing views
    Stunning views! Definitely worth the hike - the 3rd peak is harder to get to but do it if you can for the incredible views. There are plenty of people selling water up there for fairly cheap so don’t worry. Try to go before 10am at the latest.

    Easy Hike with Awesome Views
    Great walk from Ella, give yourself about an hour each way depending on fitness but the hike isn't too arduous and the track is mainly easy to walk with mostly conctrete steps and path. The final few 100 meters is a little more "Off Road" but with a steady pace most people should be able to manage the distance which should be well worth the effort with promised views across central highlands. Unfortunately when we did the walk the clouds were over the hills and visibility was around 30 feet (10 meters) but we thoroughly enjoyed the hike none the less.

    Lovely views at the top
    I enjoyed this short hike to little Adam's Peak viewpoint. There is a short walk along a busy tuk tuk street with stalls. I walked up the steps along with many others. The weather was nice. There is a zip line, a large cafe and a rockclimbing wall for the adventure seeking thrills. The views at the top are beautiful. There is a small ridge walk to another end which many people were doing. I enjoyed this hike.

    Nice walk up Little Adam’s Peak - easy climb and good views from the top
    Enjoyed our little walk up to Little Adam’s Peak. Was an easy climb with mainly stairs taking you to the main viewing point. At the top there were nice views and watching the mist drift away was beautiful. We climbed up in the morning, getting to the top around 9am, which was good to avoid the heat, but was also quite busy with a fair few other people having the same idea as us! Took us around 30-45 minutes to reach the top from Ella town and was an easy hike. We then went straight onto 9 arch bridge which worked well!

My experience hiking Little Adam's Peak was nothing short of amazing! The trail was well-marked and relatively easy, perfect for all skill levels. As I ascended, the views became increasingly breathtaking, with lush green tea plantations stretching out as far as the eye could see, and misty mountains providing a stunning backdrop. Once at the summit, I was rewarded with panoramic views that left me speechless. It's definitely worth the early morning hike to catch the sunrise or the late afternoon for sunset. Make sure to bring a camera to capture the beauty of this place! Whether you're an avid hiker or just looking for a leisurely stroll with stunning views, Little Adam's Peak is a must-visit destination in Ella, Sri Lanka. Highly recommended!

Great little evening hike that you can see and access from 9 arch bridge. To the dude who flew his drone in front of the sunset while doing what I assume were some sort of yoga poses: hope you enjoyed the birds!

The views are amazing, i believe even though I missed it, is the sunrise would be great to witness. One must go early. I believe it is a easy trek, and almost anyone can try it and should. There is one peak off the beaten path, it should also we climbed

Approximately 45 min walk from Ella centre to this hill. You need to take a path through private property, where they offer tea degustations, large swing and other attractions, but you dont need to pay for entrance. This is only way, but is accessable also for elderly people and kids. Little Adams Peak offers very nice scenery views to Ella city, Ella Rock and to the valley. Definitely go there when you are in Ella.

Good steps most of the way to the top, just a few areas to scramble. Rewarded with amazing views from top in all directions. But dangerous - so many folk teetering on edge for that ultimate pic. Wonder how many go too far! None I hope

From Ella-Passara main road (Near flower garden hotel) up to 'Pool Club' there is a narrow concrete road and tuk tuks available for this stretch. Tuk tuk charged 400 LKR to drop you to main gate of 'Pool Club'. Pool club is nice location to hangout few mins where you can see 'Ella Swing', the pools & expensive restaurant in side the club. Then to second peak there are nice steps, so easy trekking, even on flip flops. Here is the point where you can take a break again.That is the 'Flying Rawana Zip line' starting point.
Then start the last stretch (3rd peak). This stretch have concrete steps for some distance, but towards the apex the road is more narrow & damage but steady. Doable. Safe.
At the top spectacular wives are amazing. Go early morning like 7 am otherwise late afternoon. Then less tired. Two hours is enough for return to main road if you are not physically weak.
There is no any shelter at the peak, If weather is to be bad it's better to take an umbrella with you. It's worth.
Must do if you are in Ella or nearby location.
