We woke up at 02:30 in the morning and started out a little later. All Sri Lankan's already went the night before so we had the mountain to ourselves first. Once on the steps we met more people and encountered the ubiquitous shops selling snacks and tea. We were even blessed by a monk, got a white dread, which he... More

We climbed Adam's peak on a Friday night which should have been really busy. However, since it was New Year the week after, everyone must have been climbing then as it wasn't too busy at all. We made it up in around two and a half hours. It is 5500 steps and not easy by any means. However, unless is... More

Adam's Peak (Butterfly Mountain) it's only take two or three hours to summit this little mountain, the great one was the sunrise, it's very beautiful moment with the buddhist sound from the crowd

Should you climb Adam's Peak? If you like adventure, and a bit of a challenge: YES, it's rewarding and can be fun. If climbing ten flights of stairs leaves you begging for the sweet release of death, this is not the best of ideas. Here are some practical tips for those looking to climb Adam's Peak. WHEN to climb: In... More

We travelled from Bentota to Siri Padaya with Sumi Tours. Our guide Sumi and driver Prasad couldn't do enough to assist us with our experience. Siri Padaya was amazing a 3 and 1/2 hour climb leaving the base at 2am to catch the sunrise at 6.15am. Thoroughly worth the effort but climb is challenging!!!!

my last trip to Adam's peak was the 5th one.It is really a worthy lifetime experience, the journey and the destination both!. We stayed in a hotel called 'White Elephant'prior to starting climbing at 2 am."White Elephant' is not a place that I would recommend. But the rest of the trip was really great.It took us about 4 hours to... More

If you want a nice walk / hike up a mountain don't do this walk! We went on a Thursday night / Friday morning and the way up wasn't too bad in terms of how busy it was but the way down was ridiculous, we were getting squashed and shouted at, and there was hardly any space to come down... More

I will not talk about religion etc. but only about the climbing experience. Spiritual thing is as you let it to be. We started climbing at 2AM and arrived to the top 5.30AM. We are rather sporty people but at the top we felt the speed we took. The temperature difference is around 15deg Celcius so better take some warm... More
