Best 3 Places for Trekking In Sri Lanka

1. Ella Rock

Ella Rock is a day hike from Ella town in the highlands, about 1000 meters above sea level. It's best to leave your hotel or guesthouse early in the morning so as to prevent the groups and the rain that normally comes in the mid-days. You may have an area pet dog following you up to the top!

2. Horton Plains and World’s End

Horton Plains National Park is an area in the Sri Lankan Highlands at around 2000 meters above sea level. It contains an abundant plateau with thick forests, breezy grasslands, misty lakes and fresh waterfalls. There are a couple of choices for hikers on Horton Plains, from brief one hrs tracks to much longer ones that span the whole plateau. On one edge of Horton Plains is World's Edge, an abrupt and also steep 800 meter fall overlooking the countryside. On a clear day, even the sea can be seen.

3. Adam’s Peak

The most popular and also touristy trails in Sri Lanka are the hike to Adam's Peak. Climb up the 5,200 weird stone stairs in the night so that by the time you reach to the top of Adam's Peak you can enjoy the spectacular sunrise. Adam's Height or 'Sri Pada's' has a crucial relevance for all the religions. While Buddhists assert that it is the left foot of Lord Buddha, Hindus believe it to Lord Shiva's impact. Muslims and also Christians think it was Adam's very first step after being exiled from the Garden of Eden. This is why you will see a lot of pilgrims crowding the stairs to the top yet it is all worth it.
