Adam’s Peak

Begin the arduous 08 km climb to the misty mountaintop around 2am in the morning. You may reach the 2,240 metre high peak - the island’s fourth highest - at dawn to witness a glorious sunrise and the mountain’s shadow, cast by the rising sun on to the clouds below. Legend has it that, the footprint originally carved in the rock, and, now covered by an oversized reproduction set in cement, was made by the Buddha, on his third visit to the island.
