Full description

Discover the beauty of the tropical rainforest surrounding the Sri Paada (Adam's Peak) Mountain on this overnight trekking tour. Explore the third largest sanctuary in the country ─ Peak Wilderness Sanctuary ─ as you hike up Sri Lanka's second-largest peak.

Start your day with a pickup and transfer to Nallathanniya trailhead in an air-conditioned vehicle. Receive a brief and thorough description of the route from your guide and then begin the ascent through the forested mountainside. Along the way, pause to enjoy a packed dinner on the trail.

Challenge your fitness as you climb up the thousands of steps built in cement or rough stones called “Mahagiridambe” (meaning the great boulder or rock). Considered a sacred pilgrimage, the climb will be worth the effort when you reach the peak and savor the view with some refreshments. Wake up the next morning and revel in a stunning sunrise on the top of Adam's peak before starting the climb down the mountain via the Murray Estate route. Enjoy a delicious packed breakfast on the way back.
