A fantastic hike - takes approximately 2.5/3 hours. Go early, because it’s cooler and watch the sun rise. We had a guide who took us along a quieter route on the way back which was great. Fabulous views but monkeys stealing food at the top so watch out! Also fences going up when we were there which will mean you have to pay entry at some point soon. It was free when we were there.

We started are trip to the waterfall and ella big rock at ella train station. This was well worth it as the walk is beautiful. Walking down the train tracks. As u come acoss the black steel bridge there is a left down towards the water full. Don't pay any locals to show u up the rock or the water full not needed. The water full is breath taking and u can climb up and down it for some better views. Then carry on up the tea fields to the top and the look out over the vast landscape as it is unreal. Spend a little time up there. The hike itself isn't hard and doesn't take too long. Enjoy

A nice morning trip! Take the shortcut through the tea fields for a steaper trip - but this I recommend do with a guide for approx 2000 rupees. I got lost in the high grass a couple of times, a local guy saved me each time, and ended up follow me all the way up. Also make sure to see the Buddha in the cave, another view point!

We went to ella after last year december it was one hell of a adventure experience.
We had so many peaks to climb when i strated to climb on the 1st day i was about 71 kg and when im finishing my tour i waw abbot 62kg.
That is how you utilise your vacantion.
And the view from Ella rock is a awesome. And would like to visit again.

Really enjoyed this hike, although we did lose our way and had a very interesting detour on the way there. You pass the top of the waterfall on the way there, and go through some tea farms then up through the forest getting steeper until you reach the top, where you walk out onto a rocky part at the top with views on three sides (and a steep fall if you weren’t careful). Great views.
