Sri Pada (Inappropriately mentioned as Adam's peak) is the most sacred peak in the world. Thousand of devotees climb this mountain to worship Lord Buddha's foot print. The season last from December full moon poya day to May full moon poya day. Officially the gates of foot print (Uda maluwa) are closed in off season but hike in off season carries a great experience. My latest off season experience occurred in September 2020 amid of Corona threat. We did a night hike along the easiest route-Hatton Sri Pada route. (There are six routes to hike Sri Pada and ultimately only two routes bring devotees to the foot print). We two were the only human existence at that time. There were no lights along the path like season. No shops were open. We slept at an Ambalama and reached Uda Maluwa in early morning with hope of Sun rise. But it was mist and gloomy weather. In off season you can expect torrent rain and thick mist. But the environment is fresh and you can enjoy some waterfalls as well.

Have you climb from rathnapura route, best views longest path but beautiful, we (4 of us)did this Ratnapura route during off peak time few years back around end April, no food outlet & no one on the path so be ready to face everything by your self , take some food. This is very long but do it once, if you can take up a big challenge do it during the off peak period. No tea shops, no foods, take up the challenge once in lifetime. If you want to know more let me know

Sripadaya or Adam's peak is place of worship for not only Buddhist for many other religious people from deferent beliefs. The mountain is an amazing place to climb the hike up will take roughly about 4 hours to 5 hours, however on Public holidays or on weekends the hike may take over 12 hours due to crowd's of thousands of worshipers. Ideally select a day in the middle of the week and up at the top the maximum capacity is not over 50 to 100 people. Night temperature will be low as 8 degrees so be Prepared and take enough water but not to heavy back packs.

When we arrived in Dalhousie at the foot of the mountain (from Hatton train station there are regular buses which cost the equivalent of about 50p), we had just completed a big trek the previous day in Knuckles. The plan was to get up at 2am and meet a guide to walk up to the top for sunrise. We ended up cancelling this because we were still shattered from the previous day but seeing the lights in a trail up the mountain, curiosity got the better of us. We decided to do it differently and instead started at 5am while it was still dark and just walked up as far as we wanted (until after sunrise- we stopped about two thirds of the way up which took us a bit over an hour) and I’m so glad we did it. Most of the reviews just talk about the view and the sunrise and how cold it is waiting at the top, but it’s such a brilliant opportunity to be immersed in a cultural experience and religious pilgrimage which is additional to all of these things. You don’t need a guide, just follow the path lined with stalls, follow the lights and the Sri Lankan people. Going up at 5am and then coming back down part way meant we shared the walk with other people but we were the only tourists and we didn’t get held up or stuck in queues by the sheer number of people. I have no doubt the view at the top is beautiful, but for me the experience of Adam’s Peak was about the incredible views and sunrise on the way up, the silhouettes of the monkeys jumping in the trees against the pink sky, trying the sweets from the stalls, the scent of citronella and incense everywhere, the shrines and the lights, someone playing a plastic container as a drum, fresh hoppers for breakfast, the soundtrack of chanting and waterfalls, seeing the families from babies to elderly grandmothers helping each other up and down the steps and feeling the religious significance of this day for so many people walking. We almost didn’t go because we have lots of walks with beautiful views planned but it’s so much more than that. Is it worth it? Yes definitely, but walk it your way and as an experience rather than just a hike.
