Watch the sunrise from top of Adam’s Peak (Sri Pada)


The climb to Adam’s Peak Mountain in Sri Lanka’s hill country is just a magical experience. It’s a magnificent creation of nature that has been venerated for centuries by most Sri Lankans. The sunrise here is just spectacular, to witness this breath-taking site you will need to head up the mountain fairly early to be there at sunrise. People climb the Adam’s Peak Mountain as a yearly pilgrimage, and they never get enough of this amazing experience.

The Adam’s Peak trail; season usually starts in December and ends in May the following year. This period is the best time, as the weather window in the mountain area is perfect for pilgrims. Thousands of local Buddhist devotees visit the sacred mountain to worship God Saman who is the guardian of this mountain. This climb does require a certain amount of fitness and it is recommended that you take a guide along with you on this trail.

We recommend that you avoid weekends and public holidays to climb the mountain, as it can get very crowded, and it will not be a pleasant experience.

    Watching the sunrise from the top of Adam’s Peak(Sripada), after spending hours to climb it in the night is an amazing feeling. Climbing part is more amazing, the cold weather may gives you a tough time. But in the end it all erased by the rays on the morning sun.

    Sunrise view is always wonderful wherever you are. I visited Sri Lanka last year and it is really a wonderful destination and related to Ancient History.
