Adam’s Peak ist ein 8.9 Kilometer langer, moderat besuchter Hin- und Rückweg in der Nähe von Maskeliya, Nuwara Eliya, Sri Lanka. Er führt durch schönen Wald, vorbei an herrlichen Aussichtspunkten und es gibt oftmals Wildtiere zu sehen. Aufgrund der Steigung und Distanz ist die Strecke als schwierig einzustufen. Hier kann hervorragend gewandert und ein Ausflug in die Natur unternommen werden. Die Route ist am besten von Januar bis Mai zugänglich.

Many Sri Lankan's hike this paved path with about 5000 steps to reach the top where there is a shrine which is said to contain Buddha's footprint. It is customary to climb in in the dark to reach the top for sunrise. We left our hotel about 2:15am and could have completed the climb in under 2.5hrs but stopped near the top at a tea house for a warm drink out of the cold wind because there was a long time until sunrise. At the top there were many locals - quite a few of whom looked like they spent the night up there huddled under blankets. About an hour before sunrise the jockeying for position began to get a good place to see sunrise. Close to sunrise some musicians started - it was a magical experience. After sunrise go to the other side of the peak to see the amazing conical shadow the mountain casts. About 1.5hrs to get down. We did it with kids aged 10 and 12 and we do a bit of hiking so are reasonably fit. Highly recommended.

Started around 2.30am from Nallathanniya (Hatton side) and reached to the top in 2 hrs and 35 mins. Trail was very clean and plenty of shops to buy water, food etc. the view from the top is amazing. Coming down was much quicker

For starters, I have to say that Sri Lanka in general blew my mind, it is such an incredible country. Adam’s Peak was hard, we left at 2am and arrived around 6am, it is very hard, but once you get to the top and you witness the sunrise coming out over that view, it will blow your mind. I will never forget it and the view coming down is breathtaking. I would recommend this to anyone!!

For starters, it is 5.61 miles one way. The elevation gain is 3,798ft per Strava. We left at 1:30am and it took us 4 hours to the top and 2 hours down. Climb down is also challenging due to uneven steps. There are 6000 uneven stair steps so be prepared for this. No need to carry water as there are ample vendors on the way. I took my hiking poles which made it a bit easier. Although there are several toilets, I did not use any and wouldn’t recommend it. I hired a guide but this is completely optional as the path is very clear.
