When you get to Ella railway station, ask the locals for instructions on the track leading to Little Adams Peak. It may appear to be a long route, but the hike to the peak is well worth it because the top's 360-degree view of the surroundings is breathtaking. It's a 1.5-kilometer walk from Ella town to the trailhead for Mini Adam's Peak. For 200 LKR ($1), you may take a tuk-tuk from the main street to the trailhead.
