      Stop At: Little Adam's Peak, Passara Road, Ella 90090 Sri Lanka
      Little Adams Peak got its name due to the similarity of the mountain with the famous Adams’ Peak mountain shape. It is 1141 m in height and the total hike will be only 40 – 50 minutes from the mountain. 360 degrees panoramic views with clouds rolling in, is a treat to watch for any traveler. The hike itself is a worthy experience as you have to walk through the lush green tea plantations and even talk with the local woman who pluck, collect and work in the tea Plantations. It is believed that this is the place where King Ravana practiced his daily ritual to worship the sun God. The hike up to the little Adams peak will give you a good impression of the landscape around Ella with a fantastic view so this little Adams Peak is absolutely worth the climb!
      Duration: 2 hours

      Stop At: Nine Arches Bridge, Ella Sri Lanka
      The glorious Nine Arch Bridge between Ella and Demodara station is one of the engineering marvels in the early 20th century.This bridge, which is almost 100 years old, has been built with blocks of stone and cement without any strengthening iron or concrete. The giant arches take the bridge on a curved path to link to mountains. The Bridge was commissioned in 1921 under the British Government. Located almost 3100 feet above the sea level, this 99.6ft high bridge is called “Ahas namaye palama” (Nine skies bridge) in Sinhala. When one stands underneath it and looks up there is a beautiful sight of ‘nine skies’ through the nine arches, hence the Sinhala name. This bridge is also called ‘The Bridge in the sky’ due to the sheer height.
      Duration: 1 hour

      Stop At: Ravana's Cave, Wellawaya road Nature Exploration and conservation Society ,#37/2,kekunahena,opatha,Galle, Ella 90090 Sri Lanka
      It is quite a small cave, measuring about 50ft wide, 150ft long and 60ft high. History says that the cave is used by King Rawana to hide the Princess Sita.The cave lies 1,370 m (4,490 ft) above sea level on the foundation of a cliff, and is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Sri Lanka with a historical value. It is also thought to be connected to the cave at the Dowa rock temple in Bandarawela (part of King Walagamba's famous 'tunnel network'). Archaeological findings include a human skull dating back to 20,000 BC.These tunnels prove beyond doubt the architectural brilliance of King Ravana. The tunnels served as a quick means of transport through the hills and also as a secret passage. A close look at these tunnels indicates that they are man-made and not natural formations.If you like to explore historical places in Sri Lanka and admire the Ravana History, then this is definitely a place to visit.
      Duration: 1 hour

      Stop At: Kithal Ella Falls, Ella 90090 Sri Lanka
      Kithal Ella Falls is around 2.4 km away from Ella, a town known for its lush vegetation, towering mountains and tranquillity. Cascading down from a height of 23 metres, flowing past the gaps within rocks, this small but picturesque waterfall is frequently visited during the hike towards Ella Rock.A fifteen-minute walk alongside the railway lines past the Kithal Ella railway station and amid the jungle brings you to this little-known gem. The fall on the top is the most beauty full fall with blue water and shallow ends. During the rainy season, the waterfall is at its best and as beautiful as a snow queen, as it cascades lusciously down in rhythm no other can match.
      Duration: 1 hour

      Meals included:
      • Lunch
      • Dinner
      Accommodation included: Overnight Stay in 3 star hotel in Ella

      Day 2: Negombo/Colombo - Ella

      Stop At: Ella Rock, Ella Main Street NECS-Nature Exploration and Conservation Society Sri Lanka, Ella 90090 Sri Lanka
      Trekkers would love the place. It’s bit tiring to do the hiking. But it is definitely worth it. Once you got to the summit you will realize why we said so. The panoramic views it provides with mist and cloud covering the area, especially in the early mornings and the late evenings are something you should witness and that would suffice enough to say that you visited Ella. 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.
      Duration: 4 hours

      Stop At: Ravana Ella Falls, Ella-Wellawaya Road, Ella 90090 Sri Lanka
      Ravana Falls is another must visit in Ella. Hill country of Sri Lanka is quite popular for beautiful waterfalls and Ravana Falls is right at the top. The falls are quite impressive, and you can climb over some of the rocks to get a closer look. If you love water and want to have some splash time, enjoying some hours in the water fall, then this is the place in Ella. It currently ranks as one of the widest falls in the country. This waterfall measures approximately 25 m (82 ft) in high and cascade from an oval-shaped concave rock outcrop. During the local wet season, the waterfall turns into what is said to resemble an areca flower with withering petals.
