Known by the locals as ‘Sri Pada’, the mountain contains a footprint in stone that Buddhists believe to be that of Lord Buddha, Hindus consider being that of Shiva and which Muslims and Christians believe was left behind by Adam. The Buddhist pilgrimage season is from December to May and there are several routes to the top. The climb can take around three hours though it may take longer depending on your fitness levels. For the best experience begin your trek in the early hours of the morning so that you can reach the peak during dawn; the breathtaking views of the surrounding landscapes bathed by the rays of the morning sun is truly worth the climb!
