Full description

Explore Ella Rock and the striking surrounding landscape on a private guided hike. Watch the warm sun rise over the sprawling, lush countryside of Sri Lanka, beginning your day in the most idyllic way. Follow your local guide up to the peak, learning about the area and its rich biodiversity.

You will be starting your Ella Rock Hike Tour at Ella Town. You will be met here by an experienced local trekker at 0600 hrs. He will then lead you through the countryside to the track using the best routes. The track up to the peak is quite clear. Once you reach it, you will be hiking up the slopes of Ella Rock. Some of the things to see on the way would be the tea plantations with the pluckers heading to work and the beautiful countryside. Once you reach the peak you will be greeted by a steep drop that affords you with breathtaking views. With the sun rising higher, the distant hills and rolling green valleys below will be especially beautiful. So don’t forget to bring your camera. After spending some time up on the top of Ella Rock, you will be hiking back to Ella Town. The entire hike, up to the peak and back down, will take you approximately five hours. You will be completing your Ella Rock Hike Tour at 1100 hrs, just in time for you to have a hearty breakfast.
