 Things to do

Trek to Adam’s Peak

Admire flora and fauna galore whilst climbing 8,600 steps to the summit of Adam’s Peak, one of Sri Lanka’s most illustrious mountains located in the lush greenery of Hill Country on this full day trek. A footprint shaped impression (1.8 meters) on its summit has led to many a myth: Buddhists believe it belongs to Lord Buddha, Hindus say it is Lord Shiva’s, whilst Muslims claim it belongs to St. Thomas. This makes Adam’s Peak a key pilgrimage site. Early risers will be rewarded with some of the most breathtaking sunrise ever seen.
