(SRI PADA)

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!
