What you'll do

This is an opportunity to tick few wishes from your bucket list. Everyone would visit Ella rock but not many of them would enjoy the peaceful sunrise from the top with less humens and more nature around them. We will start this hiking from Ella town at 3:30 in the morning. We will walk along a railway for 2km and will start hiking from that point on. Sunrise will happen around 6 and it's so beautiful before that time. Hike doesn't take 2:30h, we will take some brakes along the way. To catch a breath, To have a sip of water, listen to the sounds coming from the nature, to capture the moment (monkey has an eye for photography) and to look up to the sky searching for shooting stars. Once we reach to the top you can just sit and relax, try some yoga or meditation while waiting for the sunrise. I will never rush you to leave the place. So when you have enough of it, we will come back in the same way. Will stop by at Kithalella waterfall. (not a big deal not a place to swim or shower) and then we will get back to Ella town around 9-10am.
