Went for a nice walk and got some great views of the valley and the water falls. You can buy cold water along the way at reasonable prices if you don't want to pack water with you.

We had a wonderful time hiking up there. Be careful don't go left, just after the bridge as some women will tell you. Just walk a little further and turn left into the tree garden. This way it is much easier to find the path and you will not be hazled from so called guides.

Awesome things to do in Ella: exploring Sri Lanka’s hill country. Sri Lankan highlands for an outing with island's best hikes and views, waterfalls, railways, easy climate and everything

Trails are confusing and you might get lost. Worth negotiating for guide, but they are pricy. But friendly and helpful.

Ella is a great place to hike and trek for some incredible views of the mountains, hills and waterfalls in Sri Lanka. To set expectations though, people should be aware that Ella has no major chain hotels. It is full of guesthouses and small BnBs, and you shouldn't expect 5 stars. It is a backpacker haven, and on the main street, you will see lots of backpackers in the bars and cafes. BUT having said all of that, the beauty, scenery and hikes are great, and once you reach the end, the treat is a stunning view of the greenery and mountains. On the way between Nuwara Eliya and Ella you will go on a road that even takes you above the clouds (if it is a cloudy day). One should definitely go if you are into trekking and nature trails! Monkeys everywhere as well.

Good place for young people who like to climbing,walking and relaxing, there's very good restaurants and many guesthouses for very reasonable price but most of the guest houses they don't provide driver accommodation so if you are going with driver or guide you have to take care of them

We were traveling from Nuwara Eliya to the Ella. Very nice view. In the high season is difficult to buy tickets with seats. You have to make early reservation.

My first impression of Ella, when I was brought there by my guide was -- Gosh, I am literally in the sticks! I could not see what the rave reviews were about, but then again, to each his own. All I could see were dense forestation, tons of flies and insects circling me and treacherous treks which caused me to lose my balance many times and I had a real fear of slipping and breaking my neck on muddy slopes. There was none of the clean air and silence as the animal calls are pretty loud. This is probably only a good attraction for very fit folks, or those who love a jungle like atmosphere or trekkers and adventure seekers. It is NOT for a traveller who is looking for a relaxing holiday and hate trekking and climbing. Do check with your travel advisor what exactly you will be doing in Ella if its part of your itinerary. I much rather prefer Nuwara Eliya - its pretty and spruced up and lovely for a stroll and the tea plantations are spectacular. I just wish I had spent my day in Nuwara Eliya rather than Ella.
Having said that, we lunched at Mountain Heaven hotel and had a great view of the Ella Gap, which is beautiful. Ravana Falls is ok too, but then, one does not have to go to Ella to visit waterfalls. Other than that, if like me, you hate trekking and being in deep forestation like environment, this is not for you and staying in Ella, no matter what your travel advisor says -- should be avoided. Travel companies tend to assume that all travellers enjoy the same thing when in Sri Lanka. Hence Ella is always worked into the itinerary. Let them know if you are not keen on staying in such an environment or visiting such an attraction.
