It's beautiful at the top on a clear day. An early start is best. Avoid climbing if the day is overcast or misty. It is a bit of a climb and may be tough on the knees for older people but if you are generally fit, go for it! You won't regret it!

90 / 100 minute round trip. Easy walking first half followed by a bit of a scramble second half. Fabulous 360 views from the peak, especially in early morning light. The flea ridden dogs that live on the hills were a little off-putting at first, but they seemed harmless

Small, but perfectly formed. You get great views without a great slog. The walk is challenging enough, but short.

A short hike through tea plantations will get you up to Little Adam's peak. Lots of picturesque viewpoints will make your walk a nice one. Everything is free of charge and apart from one snake charmer at the entrance nobody will hassle you. Go early in the morning to avoid the heat. 98 Acres is a perfect final stop. Have... More

About 500 steps to get up the hill but you get a great view for it. Steps not suitable for older people.

We really enjoyed waking up little adams peak. It's quite a scenic walk and very accessible for people of all ages. Loads of tourists from 5-70 years old were heading up there when we went, and most people were managing it in flip flops. You could even get a tuk tuk halfway up if you were not inclined to walk....

After a long but not too arduous climb which can be done up a set of steepish steps or a mixture of easier pathway which eventually meets with the steps further up you will be greeted by amazing views can be hot work on the climb but there is a fantastic cooling breeze on reaching the top! Well worth it!... More

If you are into walking it's probably OK, otherwise it is a hot sweaty drag up lots of steps to a viewpoint no better than the view from the bottom.
