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

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

Hi Rosy - I would have thought it would be the night of Tuesday - Wednesday morning would be busier, as that is when the full moon is. Enjoy your climb!
