Adams Peak

Adam’s Peak is located in a picturesque area of the southern hill country about 2 hours drive from Hatton. The peak has a few names depending on beliefs - Adam’s peak after the place where Adam first set foot on earth after being thrown out of heaven, Sri Pada – which means sacred footprint after the footprint left by Buddha as headed to paradise and Samanalakande – Butterfly Mountain. Each year during the months of December through to May, many locals and tourists embark on a pilgrimage up the peak through the night to arrive at the top of the holy mountain in time for sunrise which is a pretty spectacular sight.
