Over 2,000 m (7,00 ft) tall, Adam's Peak (Sri pada) has served as a major pilgrimage site for more than 1,000 years. Make the long winding way to the top to see the "sacred footprint"--Buddhists believe it to be the footprint of Buddha, Hindus of Shiva, and Muslim and Christians that of Adam (or St. Thomas). Several trails offer access to the top; most are illuminated at night and feature rest stops and shops providing climbing essentials and basic refreshments.

  • Good place with many devotees visiting. Lovely scenery and lovely weather. All people around the world come here to have a look and pay respect to the sacred foot print of lord Buddha. Rather than tourists the locals litter đźš® the place. Very nice place to be. Would surely go there again.
  • I give this review only 4 stars because when we visited there were a lot of people climbing and we had to stay in line, in total we lost about 2 hours. The climb is not easy, the hardest part is to go down. The view from the top is pretty amazing. There a lot of shops during the climb, but from my point of view is better to bring your own water and snacks. Tip: avoid public holidays and weekends.
