Adams Peak climbing season
Location:Hatton
City/Town:
Sri Pada, or Adam’s Peak, is sacred to all four religious groups in Sri Lanka – the Buddhists, Hindus, Muslims, and the Christians. During the climbing season from December to April, thousands of devotees from many faiths make the pilgrimage to the peak of this 2,234 meter mountain. Young and old give courage to each other and recite traditional stanzas while climbing to the peak. The climb is best attempted at night where you reach the mountain top to see the sunrise and the awe-inspiring view from the top. It can be one of the most moving experiences in Sri Lanka. During pilgrimage season, the stepped mountainside is lit by strip lights and rudimentary stalls offering refreshments to fire your resolve to reach the summit.
