Breathtaking view for those who can relate to nature. A must if being in Ella. It takes 4-5 hours for the whole walk (we did with Ella Tours).

Really enjoyable way to see Ella. The climb is difficult but the views are worth it. Make sure you follow the route you planned rather than being distracted by the food and drink sellers who are keen to make sure you come into their shops...More

You can - but its always worth taking a guide if you are going to do the walk for sunrise. That's what we did - it cost equivalent of £10pp and it was worth every penny.
