Little bit about Ella Rock
Climbing the Ella rock gives panoramic views of the Ella Gap and Little Adam's Peak. The walk along the tea estates, hills, and tall shrubs is an immense experience that you will never regret. Start your hike very early in the morning and you will get the chance to watch the magnificent sunrise view from the summit.
There are about 16 alternative routes for the way up and make sure you take a map with you, or a guide. You could also ask the way from one of the locals before starting to climb up. Some hikers start their hikes from the Ella Railway Station, but it saves about 30-60 minutes if you could begin it at the Kithal-Ella Station.
