Evening is the perfect time to reach Hatton which is a 30.5 kms journey to Adam’s Peak (Siri Padaya Peak). It is known as Adam’s Peak as it is believed to be the place where Adam set his foot first on Earth after being evicted from heaven and also Sri Padaya Peak because the Sacred Footprint is said to be left by Lord Buddha. After relaxing for some time you can trek up the hills just around or after midnight. You can hire local guides to help you with the same. The trek takes average 3-4 hours. The sunrise over the Hill Country is the enchanting view due to which the trek will be worth. The illuminating view of sun along with the mist casting shadows on the slopes is spectacular. Travel tips - Stretch well before starting the trek. Carry warm clothes to prevent yourself from catching a cold after sweating during the trek as it will be chilly up there. This route is well lit only during the pilgrim season from December to May. If you are not visiting during this time, carry your own torch.

About Maskeliya

I dropped off at Maskeliya for a cheaper accommodation. I found a place to spend the night but it was really far from the bus station and a good 5 Kms from the Adam's Peak. Anyhow, I walked towards the "Madhusa Rest" house. Somewhere in between, I felt that I was lost but there some these school kids who helped me find the place.
