Ascending Adam’s Peak
Climb Adams Peak standing at 7,360 ft. (2,243 meters) high. This is the country's holiest mountain. Its name derives from a claim by the early Muslims that it is the place where Adam first set foot on earth, thus indirectly claiming that Sri Lanka is the original Garden of Eden. However, the more popular name is ''Sripada'' or the sacred footprint, in the belief that Buddha’s foot print is found at the summit. The ideal climb should be at night so as to reach the top early morning and see the almost supernatural spectacle of the magnified triangular shadow of the peak, superimposed on the countryside at dawn.
