    Great guide indeed guys! It’s quite a remarkable experience and your post stirred quite some marvellous memories…
    We did stay in the White House as well, but wished we stayed two nights in order to rest our legs after the climb or better say the descent. I think our legs still hurt a few days later, especially when climbing stairs. 🙂
    Quite interesting are as well the strokes of the gong you hear at the top. Before entering the viewing platform people hit the gong, each stroke indicating one completed ascent in their life…
    How are your legs btw?? 😉

    Alright ! I’ve been waiting for you guys to post something again. I’ve added Sri Lanka to my bucket list and will be doing some climbing – that mountain’s got my name written all over it 🙂

    Having done the trek this morning and reading (with aching legs) your article now, it’s very informative and useful for other travellers. I was compelled to respond to point 7 of your tips ‘blazing your own trail’. I personally found the behaviour of some tourists to be very disrespectful just so they could get there quicker or get the perfect shot. Adams Peak is first and foremost a pilgrimage for the locals. I saw lots of very old Sri Lankans endure pain and hours of trekking to get to the top, for some of them it may well have been their last pilgrimage. So to just skip the queue, or even jump across to the ‘going down lane’ is incredibly rude behaviour and disrespectful. What makes you so special that you feel as if you don’t have to queue like the rest of the locals and polite, respectful tourists? I don’t think you should be encouraging this tip in your article.

    I will certainly share my feedback and how your tips would be useful for me while climbing the summit once I will be back.
