♫♫ The Hiking Song ♫♫

Little Adams Peak it is named after the sacred Adams Peak (Sri Pada –where the foot print of Lord Buddha is preserved) regarding the similarity between the two mountains. Therefore the mountain was called as Little Adams Peak.

It is 1141 m in height. You have to walk through lush green tea plantations, waterfalls and paddy fields while enjoying the sceneries.

It will be priceless if you could visit the place in the morning when the clouds roll in.

You could see the people who are plucking and collecting tea leaves, working in their estates. It will take around 35-45 min to reach to the top of the mountain on a zig- zag path. Thus it is an ideal place to watch sun rise in the morning. With prodigious views of as far as Ella rock and down to the gap will be gorgeous.

It is a must to say that ‘don’t forget to wake up early in the morning and climb the mountain before it gets hot’ otherwise you will feel tired.

#2 is unfortunately all too common nowadays and every year all over the world people die for the sake of Instagram

So true Lee. More people die taking selfies than killed by sharks, for instance.
