Full description
Embark on a full day tour to Ella, a famous mountain village known for its stunning views. Witness the incredible panorama at Ella Gap from the top of Ella Rock or Little Adams peak. Take an easy going walk through tea plantations to temples, waterfalls, and viewpoints as you learn all about the natural beauty of Ella.  Start the day by being picked up at 7 AM from your hotel in the Nuwara Eliya where you will be transferred to Ella. At 8:30 AM, start your day from Ella Rock where you will embark on a relaxing hike through tranquil woodland and tea plantations. Take a slightly more challenging than the climb to Little Adam's Peak to admire the amazing panoramic views in the morning light. At around 10:30 AM, climb down from Ella Rock and take a tuk-tuk to visit Nine Arch Bridge, one of the most iconic bridges in Sri Lanka, located in Demodara, between the Ella and Demodara railway stations. This massive bridge has been built entirely of solid rocks, bricks, and cement without using a single piece of steel. When one stands underneath it and looks up there is a beautiful sight of ‘nine skies’ through the nine arches, hence its name. At 1 PM, stop for lunch at a local restaurant. After lunch, begin the next hike up to Little Adam’s peak. This is Ella’s best-known tourist attraction, named after the sacred Adams Peak (Sri Pada –where the footprint of Lord Buddha is preserved) regarding the similarity between the 2 mountains. Start the hike gradually with an easy walk up to the mountain of Little Adams Peak, with marvelous views of Ella Gap. Admire the workers plucking and collecting tea leaves as you hike through lush green tea plantations, and paddy fields while enjoying the scenery. By the end of the tour, by around 5:30 PM you will be transferred back to your Hotel in Nuwara Eliya.
