Overview

Ella Rock is indeed a breathtaking experience especially for those who take up an outdoorsy approach to life. Travelling towards Ella Rock by train is probably the best way to get to a point of access for hikers. The train ride not only offers a swift approach but also calls in for a photo session while on the move. Travellers and aspiring hikers would find that the route ending at Ella Train Station or the next station which is Kital Ella, will take you closer to the Rocks. Foreign hikers do not necessarily need to rely on booking a guide for this trip however it is sometimes advised if there is any fear of getting lost.  

Of course, before getting ready for a scenic train ride, make sure you pack up enough water bottles along with a sunhat or cap and a camera no doubt as there will be some views worth enjoying and capturing on a roll. Also, don’t forget your sturdy walking shoes or trainers as the hike would take something between 2 and 4 hours depending on one’s speed. The ideal time to go on this hike would be to do it early in the morning, around 4am for an even better trip and to make it on time for sunrise in order to catch a glimpse of it. An early morning hike is also ideal if you want to get a fresh feel of that crisp breezy air and a touch of that warm morning sunshine.

Suffice to say that over the years, hikers have found themselves taking alternate routes to get to the top and there are numerous short cuts that one can take. Once atop Ella Rock, the surrounding view calls for recognition as one can witness from an edge the mountainous scenery shrouded in sunshine. Down below, one can spot Ella Town in the far off stretch.

After the hike is over, the next best thing would be to find a nice chilled out spot for some well-deserved resting. Ella is quite abundant with good restaurants and cafes. From fruit smoothies and sandwiches to evening indulgences comprising of beers and cocktails, Ella has it all. Some of the best rated places to try out would be Matey Hut and Cafe’ Chill to name just two.

Ella is ideal for travel pretty much throughout the year as the weather feels just perfect and cool all year long. Travellers are encouraged to visit between the seasonal period of January through May.
