The ascent is not easy but the rewards that you get from the top in terms of spectacular views of the valley and the verdant mountains are completely worth the effort. Adam’s Peak is most famous for the beautiful sunrise and sunset views it offers to the climber. There will be a series of stairs just before the peak, and you will find many pilgrims chanting prayers here.

Adam's Peak, Nuwara Eliya Reviews
Great physical challenge! Be prepared to be asked for 'donations' if you accept a blessing string. Check the weather. If it suggests rain, expect not to be let in to the gated area to see the footprint or to see a sunrise.
Sacred mountain where Buddhists believe to have the Lord Buddha’s foot print at the peak. Long climb which can take about 5 - 6 hours and if you start climbing at midnight aiming to be at the top for sunrise, it would be the most scenic thing you will Ever see in your life!!!
It's a robust hike with a lot of stairs. Expect 4-5 hours to get up for the average person. Most people, myself included, leave very early to watch sunrise. If possible do the hike on a weekday to avoid all the local tourists. There are plenty of shops along the way if you need food or drinks. It is quite cold on top before sunrise. Bring warm clothes.
Very disappointed hike. Don’t choose week end and poya days. You will have terrible and annoying experience. As everyone tells beautiful sun rise, natural place. No doubt on that. Meantime it’s not like a sacred place. Using alcohol, smoking and using bad words and teasing while hike. Some people chanting in a funny way. There are so many shops they sell Red Bull and cigarettes. Adam’s peak treated as tourist / business place not holy/ sacred place. Don’t use the name of Buddha and spoil the respect of this place. No clean, very dirty and disgusting wash rooms. Everywhere garbage and all. Very crowded when I was visited. No one organized the crowed. No security people or police there to clear the crowed. Some public did volunteer service. Salute for them. And also by force doing some religious things by some monks and helpers. They were behaved like thugs. By the way place is awesome but people destroying the reputation.
One of the best hikes ever and a well known place to experience an amazing view of the sun rise. So it’s better to start the hike in the afternoon so that can reach the summit before morning. If you are careful enough, can see different kinds of birds as well. Almost all the religions in Sri Lanka consider this place as a sacred place. If you are visiting, please be aware that the rest rooms are limited throughout the trail and their condition could be below satisfactory. Make sure you do not litter. This world heritage site should be saved for the future generations.
