Sri Pada Trekking Tour
Adam’s Peak, or Sri Pada as known in Sri Lanka, is a mountain 2243m high in the south of the central highlands. The mountain features a rock formation that is considered as the footprint of Buddha for Buddhists. The mountain has a path to the top consisting of several thousand steps, many different heights and uneven. The ascent takes on average 4 hours and is particularly steep towards the top, although is quite safe as there are handrails to hold on. Many Sri Lankans make the climb several times in their lives; one can ring the temple bell at the top as many times as one has climbed. The 1400m ascent means a significant difference in temperature as you reach the top, and this is exacerbated by the wind. It is not a hard climb but especially on the way down, leg muscles will be overexerted.
Sri Pada Trekking Tour that takes you from Ella, Nuwara Eliya, Kandy, Gampola, to the trekking tour, famous for Sri pada trekking, Devon Fall, St.Clair Fall, Mohini Fall and beautiful waterfall with enjoying the hidden wonders of the tropical mount range. Climb to the top of a mountain, walk beautiful tea plantation and visit many Buddhist and Hindu temples.
The pilgrimage season period is a particularly busy time to climb; it runs from Full Moon December to Full Moon May. At the top, the wind is very strong, but the scenery is breathtaking. Clouds lying 500m below hit the mountain and skim over the top, giving a spectacular sight. Many people attempt the ascent in the early hours of the morning, with the goal of seeing the sunrise; others climb in the afternoon to see the sundown. Climbing Sri Pada is possible during the off-season too (June to November). However, due to the weather conditions, we recommend climbing the mountain in the daytime.
The mountain is also known as the “butterfly mountain” for the large numbers of butterflies that visit and perish each year. So bringing food and especially water is important if you would climb then. The Sri Paadha trekking tour extremely offers superb nature trails through tropical rain forests, waterfalls, streams and rivers, and past lush tea plantations.
