From Ella: Little Adam’s Peak and Nine Arches Bridge Hiking

1. From Ella: Little Adam’s Peak and Nine Arches Bridge Hiking

Start from pickup from a centrally located hotel in Ella. Begin a 2-hour round-trip hike up Little Adam’s Peak accompanied by a qualified guide sharing interesting information about tea plantations, and local fauna and flora. This mountain has an elevation of 1141 m above sea level and gets its name from its similarity of shape to the famous Adam’s Peak, the fifth tallest mountain in Sri Lanka. Once you reach the summit, take in great panoramic views in the early morning. After returning to the base of the mountain, enjoy a refreshment drink with cookies while enjoying the sunrise on the rock. Take an approximately 40-minute walk through woodlands to the famous Nine Arches Bridge. This incredible historical viaduct built entirely from stone, bricks, and cement which was created in the times of British colonial rule in Sri Lanka. It spans a space of over 300 feet and has a height of approximately 100 feet. Walk along the railroad passing over the bridge, and listen to your hiking guide explaining the history and stories about Nine Arches. You can also get some excellent photographs at this spot. Continuing on you will hike another 40 minutes along the railroad until you reach the Demodara Railway Station. This station has a unique architectural design hailing from the British colonial era. The railway line loops back around to enter a tunnel running below the railway station. This spiral loop allows the trains to go through the same location twice. Here is where you will finish your hike.

We had a great morning with a very funny guide. Unfortunately, all points are very touristy. Nevertheless, the tour is very suitable to visit the most important places of Ella in a short time.
