Geocache Description:

The Sacred character of this mountain-peak of 7,360ft and its legends has brought many a visitor from many lands like Alexander the Great, Marco Polo, Ibn Battua, on pilgrimage here. The trails and traditions along these routes are as old as time itself, with legends so hoary that history has no knowledge of them. 

History of Adam's peak runs back to 2100 years to the reign of King Valagambahu (104 – 76 BC) who made the discovery of the sacred foot print during his exile in the mountain wilderness.

.The primeval forest which surrounds the peak is known as the peak wilderness, the grandeur of its ruggedness and its rushing waters falling from dizzying heights to form stunning waterfalls.  Off season climbing of Adam's Peak is more rewarding as you will not have any human contact but is considered extremely hazardous during the monsoon season from May to August.  December to May is considered the season of Adam's Peak, Although i recommend you guys visiting right after vesak poya because there is less crowd..Be warned though climbing during off season is possible but you subject yourself to many dangers. Consult locals before making the journey.

Expect to Work hard to get this one..locating the container itself is not the hard part, it's the journey getting there...Witness the majestic views and please, it's a sacred location so please be mindful...respect authority..and enjoy thanks

p.s - you don't have to enter the temple.. and you might want to work out the hint if you want find this. Its Hidden very well.
