The village is flanked on both sides by mountains, and the renowned Ella Rock. The hike up Ella Rock is about four hours both ways. From this view point you can see what is known as Ella Gap; a valley between two mountains with plains that are nearly 1000 m below. This view is truly magnificent and on a clear fine day, you can see right across to the south coast of Sri Lanka. Those looking for an easier hike can opt for the splendid view from Little Adam’s Peak. It takes about 1.5 hours to reach this peak and back, with fewer steps to climb. Ella is also home to Ravana Ella falls, which is one of the widest falls in the island.
Gorgeous vistas of mountain ranges, spectacular plunging waterfalls, misty rugged peaks, verdant tea estates, breathtaking plains and sloping valleys, the hill country of Sri Lanka is simply remarkable.
