This was probably the most memorable experience we had from our two and a half week long trip in Sri Lanka. Get up at 2am and hike the 1000 altitude meters (3300 vertical ft) in 3-4 hours, and be at the peak to watch the...More

A challenging hike that is reward with a spectacle sunrise. Be warned the climb is very steep and can be quite cold at the top if you arrive early like we did.

Gorgeous sunset and ceremony up at the temple. The climb up wasn’t too bad and took about 3 hours but the way down was brutal. It took us 4 hours and my legs still hurt 2 days later. It was all worth it though!

We avoided the busy night ascend for sunrise and instead did start the climb early morning around 8:45am. It is quite exhausting but rewarding also. Only stairs. Nice views from atop.

The hike up the stairs was tough but loads of little rest stops. Take warm clothes and buy some snacks for when you're at the top, you'll appreciate it. But seriously it is cold up there!!!! The thing is, whilst beautiful you are surrounded by...More

Was absolutely incredible though you feel it in your legs a couple of days later. I’m a pretty fast walker so got up at 4am and had to wait around at the top for 2 hours. If you’re a strong walker/runner, be prepared for getting...More

Adams peak is a tough hike especially for someone who doesn’t work out. 5500 steps, almost 3hours of non stop climbing. Prepare your calves for some soreness!! However not gonna be a Debbie downer, the hike is done by children and elderly. So if they...More

Good shoes needed. The steps are pretty steep in parts so I'm not sure walking sticks would be useful. The season has now started so it is lit and everything is open. Enjoy
