Adam’s Peak, or Sri Pada as known in Sri Lanka, is a mountain (2243 m) located in the south of the central highlands. The mountain features a rock formation that is considered as the footprint of Buddha for Buddhist, Shiva, for Hindu and Adam for Muslims and Christians.
The 1400 m ascent means a significant difference in temperature as you reach the top, and this is exacerbated by the wind. It is not a hard climb but especially on the way down, leg muscles will be overexerted.
The Jan – March period is particularly busy time to climb. Other months see less traffic, and therefore the many stalls lining the path are not open during the “low” season. So bringing food and especially water is important. Many people attempt the ascent in the early hours of the morning, with the goal of seeing the sunrise, others climb in the afternoon to see the sundown. In either cases, torches are needed to see at night, even with full moon. Travelling in groups is always advisable
