Package No: FSP/004

 “Sri Paada” (Sacred Footprint) or Adam’s Peak Mountain is situated in the South West corner of the central mountain region. Buddhists believe that Load Buddha, during his third visit to Sri Lanka has placed his footprint on the summit of this sacred Mountain. The mountain is also named as Samanala Kanda (Butterfly Mountain).

The annual Sri Paada (Adam’s Peak) pilgrimage season runs from Unduwap full moon day (December) to Wesak full moon day (May).
