    I left this tip for some time as I have not yet climbed it but 2 years on and I have still not so its advisable to put my tip together in the hope of maybe coming back to complete the mission. This walk starts at the railway station and you walk the old railway tracks watching out of course for passing trains.

    I believe it is a 2.5hour walk maybe shorter and its best to go in the morning before the cloud settles, walking shoes are advised. I believe there is a band of local people that try and extort money out of unsuspecting foreigners I am not sure if its sign posted but if it is for sure they have messed around with the signs. If you keep going straight up you can't go wrong.

    Little Adams Peak

    If the thought of climbing Adams Peak scares you it is wise to do the baby walk Little Adams Peak a nice 30 minute ambient stroll through town and winding roads through the tea plantations the last bit is slightly steep steps. It shold note take you longer then 1hr depending on your fitness. Going in the morning to see the sunrise or at night time for sunset (take a torch) the views are spectacular.

    If you fancy a beer or pot of tea you can stop at the 5* resort 98 acres is signposted nearby. There are plenty of people climbing with only narrow steps so it may lengthen your journey time but makes for nice friendly chats.

    I never managed to make it to the cave where Sita was supposed to be held capitive.
    I did in a moment of madness climb up alongside the fall and have a dip in one of the pools if you are brave enough you can skip across the waterfall and lie on one of the big rocks and suntan lots of the locals do. The water was icy but refreshing!!

    Rawana Ella Falls is about 6 kn towards Wellawaya.It is claimed to be the wildest looking fall in Sri Lanka. In my opinion, the fall may not have spendid water falling down, the gully has made it to be outstanding.

    It is a short walk of 45 mins from Ella to the Little Adam's Peak. You will pass by a tea plantation on the way up there. Your climb awards you a spendid view of Ella Gap and the surrounding landscape.

    On the way from Ella to the Litte Adam's Peak, I passed through the tea estate where I could get a very closer look and contact with tea leaver pickers, who are mainly south indians. It is a hard life for them as they usually piacjk 10-15kg of tea leaves and earn a little money for living. We should treasure every cup of tea that we drink.
