Little Adam's Peak - Review
The Little Adam`s Peak, also known as ‘Punchi Sri Pada’ is situated at the height of 1141 meters and is one of the favourite spots for hiking among the travellers. The Little Adam’s peak got its name from the Adam’s peak, which is Sri Lanka’s holy mountain, due to the similarity of its shape. The path leading to the peak is marked and is easy to find. Once you set on the trail, you will pass through lush green tea plantations, paddy fields and as you move up, the landscape becomes more scenic. Once you reach the top, you will see a 360-degree panoramic view of the picturesque surroundings. The hike is fairly easy and can be undertaken by the entire family. You will meet a lot of follow hikers along the way. Do not forget to carry a bottle of water and a hat along with you.

Little Adam's Peak, Ella Reviews
Easy 20min walk up the peak. You can expect quite a lot of tourist there but I went in of season so it was still fine. I would recommend to go there for sunsets if you want a surreal experience. The sunset here was the best I have ever experienced. Definitely must do it!
After the sun sets and 95% of the people leave, The view starts becoming truly magical. Bring a tripod for your camera so you can capture the dim twilight accented by the dim but magical city lights. Stay until it's dark enough to need a headlamp to go down. It really will be worth it and the decent is easy anyways with steps at all steep areas.
Nice spot for good views over the mountains. Would recommend to go early otherwise the upcoming clouds around noon 2/3pm will break off the nice view. Might be also good for sunset but depends on the clouds. Haven’t been there that time. Not to exhausting to climb, some parts of the track are tricky but not dangerous. Easy enough for kids, but maybe not for older people with low fitness level.
April 2018 We had fantastic journey all over the country but Hillcountry side attract us more than other states. Little Adams Peak is the best for hiking with friends .If you are a hiker and also interest in having fun with friends. Go for a trip to Little Adams Peak. Definitely it will be a good experience We have to walk for a long distance to reach the place. But return will be awesome .You can get a fantastic aerial view of hill country and also feel an awesome breeze. Enjoy every little thing
Very easy hike to the top. About 20 tot 30 minutes. You start off at the restaurant in the bend and make your way up the top. First you'll follow a concrete path followed by dirt and finally stairs. The top has a few viewpoints, but I advise you to go in the early morning or at sunset. Overall great experience!
