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.

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.... more »
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..... more »
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 🚮 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.
