Adam's Peak is the number one most brutal physical undertaking in 10 months of active travel. This is not a hike for the casual. In fact it isn't even a hike. It's a climb up thousands of steps with very little variation in composition. After the first 1/5 of the journey or so there are never flat spots, never down... More

Climbing up Adam's Peak is very very challenging. Those who are planning to climb up the mountain, are advised to start the journey as early as possible. frequent breaks really help to restore your stamina. Don't forget to carry sufficient water, chocolates, and food items with you. Water keeps you hydrated while chocolates keep your sugar and energy levels high.... More

It was one of my must "to dos" while planning the trip to Sri Lanka due to positive reviews. Must say it was worth it. Started my walk at 2 in the morning with a guide. We were told that sunrise will not be visible, but we had a pretty amazing time and excellent views. Nature is unpredictable, so I'd... More

I undertook this climb as I’d never had the chance before & also as a “must see” attraction for an Australian friend who accompanied us to Sri Lanka. We actually travelled over one year ago but I feel I must add some comments about my experience. In the early hours one morning, we drove as far as we were allowed... More

I'm not going to lie physically very challenging but it's mind over matter! Left Clovefield Villa Laxapana via tuk tuk about an hours drive at 2am began the climb... You come across two Buddhist minks at different points who put bands on your wrists for a 'donation' of around 1000 pp. (most common amount) and they wish you luck which... More

Climbing Adam's peak is certainly a challenge, but can be fun if you have good company. As other reviewers said, it's better not to go during rainy season. It can be too wet and slippery. There is a path to follow, so it's not too rough. Just bring good, waterproof hiking boots, maybe a walking stick, food and water. The... More

I did this in the off season which was great as there were many less people but it did mean you couldn't go into the monastery at the top. This wasn't a problem as you get to the top anyway and you get to see all the views anyway. High season can be extremely busy with the steps becoming a... More

Sure enough that we have read a lot of reviews and received so many local advices about climbing Adam's Peak during off season or not. Well, locals, as a habit, visit the place during season, and thus they will definitely recommend not to visit it during off season as it rains heavily and all the shops are closed etc etc.... More
