Overnight Adams Peak Hike For Adrenaline Junkies

The amazing Adam’s Peak is Sri Lanka’s fourth highest mountain at 2244m and is located 40km northeast of Ratnapura. Adams’ peak or Sri Pada is an important pilgrimage site in Sri Lanka. It is believed by Buddhist that the foot print of Lord Buddha is no top of the summit. Adam’s Peak is surrounded, largely by the forested hills, with no mountain of comparable size anywhere near the vicinity. The Adams Peak, Horton plain and the knuckles mountain range is consider as UNESCO world heritage sites since 2011. The sun almost leaps over the eastern horizon drawing a perfect triangle of a shadow of the mountain spreading over the western backdrop of the mountain. As the sun keeps on rising, the shadow shifts towards the base of the mountain until it completely disappears, a grand finale to a breathtaking natural spectacle.

      Stop At: Adam's Peak (Sri pada), 22070 Sri Lanka
      We will pick you at around 6 Pm and after you reach Rathnapura the acsend to the mountain will start at around 12 am so that you could be at the the top in time for the dawn which offers the best odds of seeing the extraordinary views free from cloud as well as a chance a glimpsing the peak’s enigmatic shadow.The steps along the mountain are illuminated with small stalls for the weary climbers to refresh themselves with a hot cup of tea or cater to their basic needs throughout the night. Although it is exciting the climb up the 5000 steps can be a bit exhausting. The upper slopes of the mountain are swathed in dense and largely undisturbed stands of cloud forest which are home to various species of colorful montane birdlife such as the Sri Lanka white-eye and Eurasian blackbird, the sight of which might offer some welcome distraction during the slog up or down.

      Day 2: Adam's Peak - Negombo/Colombo

      Stop At: Adam's Peak (Sri pada), 22070 Sri Lanka
      The descent is a fair bit quicker than the ascent, although as every hiker knows, it's the descent that tends to wreak the most havoc with your knees. The walk down was just as painful as the trek up to the top. But on the flip side, this time the light was out and the beautiful views from Adam’s Peak, Sri Lanka will make the trek a lot more pleasant! Pilgrims who have made the trip more than three times then ring one of the two bells at the summit, each chime representing a successful ascent. This journey will be a tough but once in a lifetime opportunity for anyone who takes this hike.
