  • I walked along the railroad track from Ella, which was fun - waved at trains going by. I left at 6 am to try and beat the heat, but wished I left earlier - 5.30 would have been better. It is super hot...  more »
  • If you like hiking, this is for you. She Rock can be a little hard to find but worth it. We got a tuk-tuk to the train station kital her, walked about 500 m down the train tracks (away from her) and then followed the road to the left towards the start of the hike. From here it is quite well signposted and you will see enough tourists to be able to find your way. It's a hard uphill on marked terrain and pretty loose, so wear good shoes. It is not suitable for people with important mobility problems. The view from above is fantastic, but what is even better is the second point of view a bit beyond the forest. Great place to prepare a picnic for lunch if you plan to go during the day. I can recommend completely!

  • Ella Rock is a famous cliff, located high above Ella's village, roughly a two hours strenuous trek from the centre of town. The rock offers stunning views across the hill country, and the plains below. The trek to Ella Rock is about 8 km long and is quite easy if you follow the track
  • Nice view and it’s bit hard to get there. You could see a nice view of the Ella rock from little Adams Speak. Lots of tourist go on hiking here and nature lovers will definitely love this place. I loved the surrounding.
