Slightly unrelated to the peak itself, but don't encourage the inhumane treatment of monkeys and snakes by the local 'tourist traps'. On the way to the top, you may see a local... read more

Slightly unrelated to the peak itself, but don't encourage the inhumane treatment of monkeys and snakes by the local 'tourist traps'. On the way to the top, you may see a local man accompanied by a snake trapped in a basket and a monkey attached to a lead wearing human clothes. This is the stuff of cartoons, not reality. As...

It is a bit of a climb up, but a nice view at the summit. A few touts en route not too bad. Worth an hour or two.

Go early in the morning (between 7-8) to see the Tamil tea workers walking to their jobs. It's a lovely, easy trek. No need for hiking gear. It's just a simple walk with slight elevation culminating in a set of maybe a hundred or so stairs

An easy walk for whole family. Towards the end you need to take quite few steps to the top (not prank friendly). A great views on a way and from a top. Watch out for street dogs.

Our kids (age 6 and 9) managed without any problems. Just watch out your step when climbing. Make sure to take enough water with you and go early when it is not yet so hot. The last possibility to use the toilet is in ahotel on the way. The view from Little Adam's Peak is really worth it. Just beautiful!

As part of our tour our driver / guide walked us to the top of Little Adams Peak. Breath taking views from the top. Took us approximately 45 mins going up and approximately 35 coming down. Give yourself plenty of time as we did get out of breath near the top but we are in our 50's our 2 teens... More

Nice walk through tea plantations up to Little Adams Peak. From the top you have a magnificent view of the valley and Ella Rock

At the end of the road you will have good views so it is worth the small effort. You don't have to go to the top to make it still worthwhile.

This isn't a long walk. It gets a bit steep towards the peak but if you're of average fitness it shouldn't take more than 45 minutes to reach the top. The view is wonderful. Worth every step of the climb.
