Hiking Adam's Peak for the unfit

Adam’s Peak, locally know as Sri Pada, has an interesting history. The mountain has significance in almost all major religions. In Buddhism, it’s believed to be the footprint of the Buddha. In Hinduism, it’s the footprint of Shiva. While in Islam and Christianity, it’s believes to the first footsteps of Adam on Earth. 

Many people climb the mountain as part of a pilgrimage. Some, like myself, do it as a touristic stop. The mountain is beautiful from the ground. But it provides even better views once you climb its high peak. I’m not the fittest person in the world. I was a bit timid about climbing it. But, I did just fine. Let me tell you about it.

O, I forgot to mention that I did the climb in the middle of the night to watch the 6am sunrise.
