Ella Rock Climb

Back Back

Ella, a sleepy little town ringed by verdant mountains has become a sensation among travelers. Amidst its many a delight, the trail to the top of Ella Rock is a bucket-list item of many who visit Ella. Though it is known as a quite challenging hike, once you reach the top the view of the surrounding environment is nothing short of striking.

Experience Overview

The rugged and winding path to the top of the rock is stunning beyond words as dangling vines and towering trees unfold a fascinating world straight out of a fairytale. Also, you will walk through lush tea fields that stretch out as far as the eye could see. After a trek of approximately two hours, you take the final step and conquer the mighty top of Ella Rock. On a clear day though, an explorer who has labored up the not so easy trail leading to the summit of Ella Rock is rewarded with some of the most spectacular vistas of the mountains and valleys below. You can enjoy panoramic views of the Ella Gap to the south. Also, we try to start the hike as early as possible in the morning so that you can witness a glorious sunrise once you climb to the summit.

Managing Expectations

It is important to remember that, whilst they are experts in their field, the people who run or host our experiences are not necessarily used to working in the tourism industry and may not offer the level of service you would find at a five-star hotel. For example, instead of a formal lecture, you may get a relaxed conversation where open discussion is encouraged. All of our hosts are, however, extremely engaging, knowledgeable and passionate about educating visitors about their chosen subject and we have worked with them to ensure that they deliver worthwhile, fulfilling experiences. We welcome feedback, so please let us know what you thought and if you think any improvements could be made to the experiences we offer.
