Little Adam’s peak is the having the shape of Giant “Maha giri damba” of Holy Sri Pada. This mountain is a very beautiful and a small mountain in Ella which having a great tourist attraction.
We came to Ella around 6.30am by night mail train from Colombo. When we get down to the Ella railway station there were many tourists among there. Most of them are divided to other roads and hotels to take a rest and we started our journey to Little Adam’s peak mountain by walk. We came to the Ella junction where the road dividing to Wellawaya, Kumbalwela and Passara/Namunukula/ Badulla. We walked along the Namunukula road about 2km and came to a bend at right hand side.
Again we walked along that small and narrow road about 1.5km where the road giving the entrance to 98 acres hotel complex. We saw that many tourists has already visited the mountain and going back to their hotels. Still the mist is around the Ella rock area. Motor bikes and even any vehicle can go up to the staircase at the LAP Mountain. Then we have to climb about 200m along the staircase. The bottom of the LAP Mountain is suitable for night camping but we have to think about the lightening on rainy days. Because the area is 360 degree open view area.
This mountain is build up with three same size mountains and all the area is totally in a green island. From here we can see the ella Rock, Rawana Fall and the beautiful snake type Wellawaya-Ella road. There are some rocks around the peak and there is a box type rock where we can get amazing photo shoots. That place is totally dangerous because a single slip will give you the death of falling to the bottom of the peak which is about 300/400m.
After we spend some time on LAP Mountain we left to Nanuoya to start the next adventure of the Great Western Mountain climb.
