A whole information for mountaineering Adam’s Peak

There are some months the place the height is definitely closed and a few months the place the climate will definitely add extra problem and so there are undoubtedly higher instances all year long to plan your Adam’s Peak hike.

June/July: The monsoon season means the mountain is normally closed these months.

August to October: The mountain is open throughout these months too however you threat extra probability of rain. Much less crowded although than the principle season which could possibly be nice!

December to Might: That is the principle pilgrimage season when the mountain is open and circumstances are finest for mountaineering to see the dawn. After all although, these are the busier months with the busiest months being April and Might.

I can’t write this weblog submit with out warning you about how busy the Adams peak pilgrimage will get throughout public holidays, full moons and different spiritual occasions. As a sacred website for Buddhists, Hindus and Christians there are a number of dates particularly the place this route is chaos!

I don’t know what special occasion we by chance timed ours with (twelfth March 2023 if anybody desires to enlighten me) however we set off at 2am and have been 1km from the highest by 4.30am but it surely took us one other 4 hours (sure!) to really attain the height at 8:23am.

Why? As the trail will get towards the top it will get steeper and narrower, I’m speaking very steep! Mix this with one other 20,000 folks and a restricted summit space and you’ve got your self a really lengthy site visitors jam. At one level we didn’t transfer for an hour!

There have been no indicators (in English anyway) that indicated how far you have been from the highest, it was solely when fellow European travellers tipped us off on their descent that there’s another path to the summit (a fork at one of many temples) that may bypass this major queue!

So if you end up stumbling throughout a really busy summit like we did (which I don’t suppose is that frequent), take the appropriate highway footage under!
