It is sort of hilarious that the mountain in question has the word ‘small’ in it’s very name, just in case there might be any doubt in your mind that I’d take the lazy option. While I was in Sri Lanka, climbing the original Adam’s Peak was on the agenda, but since it wasn’t ‘climbing season’ (don’t ask me what that means!), our lovely guide Dhammika suggested Small Adam’s Peak in Ella; similar in shape, but not in size. Fine by me!
The terrain starts off quite flat, with a steeper incline as you near the summit.
Some of the very steep parts have steps! Nicely played, Sri Lanka.
The most surprising thing about Sri Lanka was how much parts of it looked like home. We could have been climbing a mountain in Ireland (except with better weather).
Bambarakanda Falls, en route. Places in Sri Lanka have the coolest names: Anuradhapura, Bandarawela, Pinawalla (all pronounced as they are spelt) sound magical.
At the summit!
