    It is the hard way to climb the Adam's peak. You must take a bus from Ratnapura to Sri Palabadalla (1h30) and the find an accomodation on site (in inhabitants house, for 800-1000rps in off season). Then you should wake...

    It was a pretty difficult trail. But the sceneries are stunning. Totally worth the hassle.
