What you'll do

This is an opportunity to tick few wishes from your bucket list. It's not just about enjoy the peaceful sunrise from the top of Ella rock and I'm not here just to show you the directions. We will start this hiking from Ella town at 3:30 in the morning. We will walk along a railway for 2km and will start hiking from that point on. Sunrise will happen around 6am and the plan is to get there before the down. Hike doesn't take 2:30h, We will be having a peaceful walk sharing stories about the country and culture rather than rushing it to the top. If it's not near to the full moon, then I know the darkest spots in town for stargazing. Once we reach to the top you can enjoy it peacefully because the spot we are going to will be less crowded than little Adams or any other peak in Ella town. Day time is all about flora and fauna. I come from a family where one of my grand father is a Sinhala doctor for snack bites and the other is a hunter. I grow up with them in a village near to the largest rain forest in SEA. So I'm a natural when it comes to spotting birds and explaining plants. We have access to a tiny tree house with the view of Kithalella waterfall . Plan is to be back in town by 9:30-10. Depend on my availability for the rest of the day secret waterfalls, underground caves with ponds in them and visit to other attractions in town is possible. Those will be for an added cost.
