Adam’s Peak climbBack
Adam’s Peak (Sri Pada) is also known as the “butterfly mountain”. At an elevation of 2,243 metres (7,359 ft) it is a stunning tall conical mountain. In Buddhist tradition it is held to be the footprint of the Buddha, in Hindu tradition that of Shiva and in Muslim and Christian tradition that of Adam. We will organize an experienced guide to walk up with you.
The climb to the summit of Adam’s Peak (Sri Pada) is a physically exhilarating experience. We start climbing from the north side, from the town of Dalhouise. The ascent takes approximately 3.5 hours and is fairly rigorous consisting of steep and sometimes uneven steps. The climb is dotted with stalls selling hot drinks and snacks and at night the way up the path lit by oil lamps.
