  • We went with a tuktuk upto the Lipton seat. The most beautiful views! When your in Ella you should experience thuis.  more »
  • You have to see it, a beautiful place, one of the prettiest places I've seen in Sri Lanka. On foot I probably do not go, I recommend you rent a car and go up to the top. Amazing views, stop by and look at the beauty.

  • Its an adventure to go to the top since the road is so narrow. Tea plantations on both sides of the road is so beautiful. You can see a vast area at the top luckily if you avoid mist. Wont see anything with the mist. Do try a cup of tea and pol roti from the restaurant at the top.
  • Beautiful view from Lipton's seat as well as the viewing tower. Best visited in the morning. We were there by 7a.m. Only a couple of visitors were there so not crowded. Kids loved the place. Stayed about an hour here while enjoying the view and a leisurely breakfast at the small shop. We fed a friendly dog who kept the monkeys at bay. Car park enough for 5-6 cars.
