We had a great 2 hour walk the afternoon we got to Ella, though it took longer than expected to get to the turning mentioned in the Rough Guide.

An excellent sunrise hike, about 2km from the village centre, an easy 20' walk only rising at the very end. The best time to visit is after sunrise, as the sun rays fall to the Ella Rock on the opposite side of the gap.

We climbed for sunrise. Was definitely worth it! Luckily we picked a morning that was clear so we had good views. Took about 30 minutes to the top. No fee or payments needed which seems rare in sri lanka. Nothing negative to say.

Good views. Doable even by OAPs. Take water - its about a 2-3 hour round trip. There are a couple of peaks when you get up there.

Slightly unrelated to the peak itself, but don't encourage the inhumane treatment of monkeys and snakes by the local 'tourist traps'. On the way to the top, you may see a local man accompanied by a snake trapped in a basket and a monkey attached to a lead wearing human clothes. This is the stuff of cartoons, not reality. As...

It is a bit of a climb up, but a nice view at the summit. A few touts en route not too bad. Worth an hour or two.
