    From Ella, follow the train track, then go down at a little restaurant/shop and follow the tracks. Be careful to the leeches. After Ella's rock view point (if it is not too cloudy) there is Temple cave at 400m. Then fol...

    We walked the route in the afternoon and it is absolutely worth it. No tourist seen after the village of Ella. Beautiful...

    Combining both the bridge and the peak will make a bit longer stroll. We added an extra visit to the black tea factory Kinellan which made above 13km circle. Technically easy path. A bit confusing walk to the bridge.
