If you are up for a good trek and want to witness the sunrise in a whole new level, this is the place you should definitely try out. It is a once in a life time experience!

It’s a 3 hour Drive from Kandy to Adams Peak and the normal practice is to start trekking at 1.00 am in order to make it to the top to witness the sunrise. It normally takes 3- 4 hours to climb 5000 steps all the way to the top. The higher you go the colder you get!

Once you reach the top and witness the amazing sunrise it’s totally worth the effort. If you are lucky enough you will be able to witness the shadow of the mountain reflecting on the other side of the sky line like a “pyramid”. It is a very spiritual mountain, the start of the longest river in srilanka starts from here.

In total it’ll take around 8 hours to finish the trek (depending on your speed). It’s in total 10000 steps up and down.

The question is..... are you up for the challenge…?!
