Temples and pilgrimage sites
Adam’s Peak („Butterfly Mountain“) is a 2243 meter high mountain in the central highlands of Sri Lanka. It is known for a rock formation near the summit, which is alternatively interpreted as the footprint of Buddha, the god Shiva or Adam. While not the highest, it is the most famous mountain on the island due to its religious significance and is a pilgrimage site for Buddhists, Hindus, Muslims and Christians. There is an inhabited monastery on the summit.
Closer to the camp are several other temples. Some can be reached on foot, or as part of a TukTuk tour.
Give your body a break. With a sport massage or a traditional Ayurveda massage at a Spa in the area your mind and body can fully relax. Experience the sustainable influence on the regeneration of your muscles and relax in a comfortable atmosphere in the tropical warmth of Sri Lanka.
In the camp a TRX exercise machine, Balance Board and slackline are available for your convenience. With the TRX, we offer an effective total body workout with your own body weight. Beginners can train targeted core stability to paddle faster. For advanced users, it is recommended to strengthen the stomach muscles and legs to generate even more spray in turns. Through the training of surf-specific movement patterns you’ll catch more waves, reach better takeoffs, gain better stability and better balance and are able to make more powerful turns. The TRX is ideal for training beginners and professional athletes alike and features a solid training of the muscles in their entirety. Thus, the intra- and inter-muscular coordination improves.
