    Adam’s peak is the fourth highest mountain (2243m) in Sri Lanka. The mountain can be spotted easily, as it is largely surrounded by forests and hills of no comparable size. Pilgrims often climb the mountain in the month of April. On top of the mountain a footprint can be found, called the ‘Sri Pada’, which is believed to be left behind by Buddha’s left foot when he visited Sri Lanka. If you want to climb the mountain, you are advised to do this around December till May, since the other time of the year the weather conditions are extremely rainy, windy and misty.
