All reviews off season sri lanka warm clothes the sun rise coming down full moon watch the sunrise worth the effort few days amazing experience hard work tuk tuk beautiful sunrise tough climb flip flops worth the climb couple of days
Just don't... I mean, I expected that it will be difficult and crowded but I did not expect that crowd... I love hiking and dare to say my tempo during walking is high and it was also here until we did hit the crowd of...More
Adam's peak was our first stop on our three week trip to Sri Lanka - we are both very physically fit but we found it exhausting! The hike is mainly steps all the way to the top- some of which are so steep! There are...More
This is not a 'traditional' hike. All the way to the top is made of concrete steps so that everyone can do the hike. The hike is exhausting but even 70 year old ladies can do it (even if it takes longer).
If you start...More
5500 steps, some steep. Hand rails along some sections. During (pilgrimage) season time it is well lit with lots of people around. No special gear required. Just carry water, a good jacket to put on once you reach the summit as it gets really cold...More
I so worried about doing this, will it be too hard, will it be too busy (we went on a national holiday day), will it be too cold, will it be difficult doing overnight??? The worries went on. But my other more calmer pragmatic half...More
Did the climb as a family including a 7 and 8 year old. Was challenging but a great thing to do. We didn't do the early morning climb to see the sunrise, so when we climbed saw a few tourists returning but otherwise only saw...More
This was something i wanted to do when i decided to head to Sri Lanka however i didnt really do my due diligence and so ...its tougher that you think its going to be...up ..and down. So - give yourself plenty of time if you...More
This seems to be a hike on more and more tourists' radars - indeed, when I hiked I reckon more than two-thirds of those doing it were western tourists. Anyway, this is a non-technical hike in that 90% of it is steps, but it's still...More
It was a mind blowing hike since I did it solo at 04:30h on a weekday. However I just missed to be on top for the sunrise but since I was almost there (5mins away from the top) I think I even had a better...More
I have wanted to do this hike for years (ever since I was a child), and decided to go in off season, thinking it would be quieter.
It definitely was quiet, my traveling partner and I were 2 out of 10 (literally) travellers in the...More

Dalhousie is the best place to stay. The path start there. I suggest leavin the room at least at 2 or 2:30 am. In full moon is crowed, so you should book a room in advance. We arrived there by taxi from Nuwara Elya. The... More

There are lots of hotels close to the start of Adam’s Peak. We arrived late afternoon and started walking to the peak at around 4 am the next morning, we were back in time for breakfast. After breakfast we left for Ella. The walk was great with spectacular views along the way. We didn’t have access to the temple at the top but the views were well worth all those steps. There was only a couple of tea houses open on the way back so make sure you take a bottle of water with you.
