The 7km upward climb was very difficult, becoming worse (inevitably) the higher we got. 5500 steps up didn't sound much to me... Boy did I underestimate it! My fiancé couldn't make the top due to asthma and a severe case of it being 530am and we'd been hiking since 3am. I went on my own but only out of sheer... More

As we have limited time and wanted to squeeze in this trip to Adam's Peak, we certainly didn't think that it's worthwhile to be honest. Adam's Peak was out first stop when we touched down to in Sri Lanka. We hired a private cab which cost about $100 one way and it took slightly more than 2 hours to get... More

We recently did the climb on July 19th. We started at 2:30am, and got to the top at about 5:15am. We took our time on the way up, and are of average fitness. I would recommend leaving around 3am, otherwise you will be waiting at the top in the freezing cold for too long. We climbed in the wet season,... More

Climbed Sri Pada/Adams Peaks during the off season (July 2015) and hubby and I found it exhilarating even though the weather conditions were bleak. In the days leading up to the day of our climb, it had been raining and the cloud cover had been low, so we opted to start at 6am, rather than the usual 2am-ish time during... More

Climbed by day during wet season. Started in nice weather but it steadily deteriorated. We took about 3 hours up and 2 back down and realised we were not as fit as we thought! Everything hurt for a few days afterwards. We were persuaded by our driver to hire a guide (Rs3,000) but really not worth it and no need.... More

It's a decent trek; however, the steps are uneven that make the trek tough. We visited the place during our honeymoon and limped for 3 days after that :-D. The best part was that the weather was great and if you get a good company then you don't exactly feel tired. We trekked the peak in Dec 2013, a couple... More

I went during off peak - so it was quite quiet. The climb itself is not difficult, just a lot of steps up to the top and not much of a scenery as you start at around 2am in the morning. THe climb up takes about 3H and once up there, you will have to brave the cold weather to... More

It was a great experience, even though it can be a tough hike in places, and even though we were told we probably wouldn't have a view at the top (which we didn't - at all!). Climbing during off-peak season means that the path is not lit up, so we bought some lamp torches in a nearby town the night... More
