If travelling in Sri Lanka, you should definately climb up Adam’s Peak/Sri Pada. That is, if you are in OK shape physically. It is about 5500 stairs, and really steep some places. We saw people really struggling, and some that that had to turn around....More

Left around 2am for the peak and realistically should have left around 3am. It took two hours to walk up whilst talking and also stopping to catch your breath at certain points. Just before the top there is a mini stop to get a coffee,...More

I climbed Adams Peak 30.10.18. Most shops and stalls were closed and it wasnt to busy. Top tip, when you get to the top, walk back down past the tea stall and on the right hand side there is a platform with a much better...More

I decided to climb alone in late October. I normally like off season travels and as long as you know what you are getting into this is an amazing adventure! I stayed in nearby Maskeliya instead of Nallathanniya. Started the climb at 2:30am reached the...More

This is a bit of a Buddhist pilgrimage and possibly one of the hardest walks I have ever done, not that I’m a fell walker or mountain climber. It was eight miles to the top and back and you set off at 2:30 am to...More
