|Adams Peak (also known as Sri Pada) is a sacred place to people of several religions in Sri Lanka!
|Beginning on the first full moon (Poya Day) in December, many people make a pilgrimage to the top of the mountain - about 7,360 feet! - usually leaving late at night so that they can be at the top of the mountain to see the sun rise.
|It is a long and strenuous climb and your legs will be hurting during and after your journey down, but it is worth the effort to experience this once in your lifetime.
|There are a couple different routes but the most popular is on the Hatton side. It is recommended to start your climb a little before 3AM (earlier if you plan on climbing at a more leisurely pace) so that you can reach the top before sun rise. It is a remarkable view as the sun illuminates the sky and earth below. It can get cool on top - so bring extra clothes to keep you warm!
