Day 3: Adam's Peak
Adam's peak has approximately 5500 steps and about 7km to the top. You will be needing approx 3 hrs to go up and 2 hrs to go down.
Atze and I didn't go all the way up. We just made 3.5km i guess (7km in total: up&down). We didnt continue not bcoz we're tired but bcoz it's not worth it anymore, there were no more views to see as it was full of clouds already up there. Going up was never easy for us too, the weather was very bad. On and off rain, heavy rain. Yes, we were extremely tired, we started hiking at 8:30am and got back to starting point 12noon. While waiting for our bus, we met this lady... Her name is Brenda. She's 90 yrs old and she's been to the top for 89 times... and counting! Yes, u read it right! She's 90 and still hiking. We found out that she's a tour guide. She showed us lots of pictures of her with the tourists she guided, different nationalities from allover the world. These pictures were actually taken from the tourists' cameras and they mailed it to her all the way from their country to Sri Lanka. Some even sent her post cards. She's really amazing, no wonder why these people love and remember her.
