The amazing Adam’s Peak is Sri Lanka’s fourth highest mountain and one of the highlights of Sri Lanka.  Adam’s Peak, commonly known among Sri Lankans as ‘Sri Pada’ is around 71 kms from the Hotel. “Sri Pada” in the native language of Sinhala refers to as the Sacred Footprint.  Buddhists claim the footprint mark as the left foot of Lord Buddha, while Hindus consider the footprint to belong to Lord Shiva.  Muslims and Christians believe its Adam’s first step after being exiled from the Garden of Eden.

You could join the many pilgrims on the journey to the top of this beautiful 2243-metre-high mountain and you will get a complete 360-degree view from the summit.  The climb to the summit is about 5,500 steps which takes around 2-5 hours depending on your fitness level and is usually trodden by night to enjoy the sunrise at the peak. There are several routes leading to Adam’s Peak, but the most popular one is the Hatton Road, which begins in the small town of Dalhousie. Hatton is the closest accessible town.   On the way to the top, you will pass several temples and landmarks, such as the Japanese Temple, Red Bridge, large Buddha statues and more.

What is spectacular of the climb is the majestic sunrise and the shadow of the Mountain. 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 rises, the shadow shifts towards the base of the mountain until it completely disappears, a grand finale to a breath taking natural spectacle.

Adam’s Peak is enclosed, largely by the forested hills, with no mountain of comparable size anywhere near the vicinity. The region of Peak Wilderness Sanctuary that include the Adam’s Peak together with Horton Plains National Park and Knuckles Range all in the Central Highlands and is recognized as a World Heritage site in the year 2011.
