    The dedication of Chamara Abeywardhane was crucial in making this a very good trip. Explore should discuss with Cham to make modifications so Adams Peak is not cloned on a busy time e.g. Friday, Saturday nights. Credit should also go to the local guides... Show more

    The walk around kandy was pretty strenuous and a couple of people were rather caught out; it could have been made clearer that this was the case
