It was amazing to see people making the pilgrimage carry the elderly on their shoulders and walking barefoot. If you want to catch the sunrise you need to give yourself at least 3 hours just to be safe. The stairs start off quite shallow but quickly get quite steep. There are stops with snacks and drink that become more frequent... More

The climb is hard work and even more so the decent. I would not have minded if the top was excellent but, unfortunately, it's really grimey and one side you have to look over the men's urinals and showers. Imagine a super congested dirty bus station on an Indian highway. It's also very busy at sunrise and so the chances... More

Adamspeak was really good place to visit. And we climb month of February 2 (srilankans independent day) oh my god very crowded this place. Really good view on top. And see sun rise also. When we start to climb it's okay for climate. But some places dirty. If some body climb Adamspeak I recommend off season period. But probably not... More

We, not experienced hikers, decided to do the climb based on what we have read about the amazing views from the top at sunrise. We left our guest house at 2.10am and walked ca. 10 minutes to the starting point. Although the hike was daunting and tough at times, we managed to reach the top in 3 hours, which included... More

Though a little nervous about the climb up Adam's Peak, it was not as difficult as we had feared, and was well worth the effort, and the pain of sore quads for the next 2 days. We started early to avoid the rush, and it was lovely to have some time walking in the dark without too many people. We... More

I was a little apprehensive about tackling the climb on our honeymoon trip to Sri Lanka - when you see it from the roadside it looks huge and I hadn't done any training to prepare for it. We set off at 2am and climbed at a good pace making it to the last tea shop for around 5am where we... More

It is great hike. we started @3pm and reach to summit @6.30 pm. There are many shops along the way but don't expect much more. If you want to take some photos around the way, its better you start your journey in the morning(before 9a.m). but you have to face heavy sunlight. but most of people choose the night. If... More

My husband arose at 2.30am and joined the throng to climb Adam's Peak from Slightly Chilled Hotel, Dalhousie. He hasn't stopped talking about it since (and that was two weeks ago!). I was a bit surprised it was higher and more awesome than I thought it would be, and if it had not been so hot I would have liked... More

I have been here twice and this place is exceptionally amazing and stunning. The climb was moderate and you have to climb 5000 steps in steep. but trust me, when the summit is reached you will feel all the pain is no longer matter. Make sure you go in weekdays (during season) to avoid crowed, so it hive the feeling... More

Amazing views and the hike is well worth it. Make sure you have a good fitness level before the hike. Took me about 3.5 hours to the top. Plenty of shops along the way so you don't have to carry too much water and ect. However prices increase as you go further. It can get wet and cold towards the... More
