Waking up at 2 in the morning to go on a 4 hour hike up over 5,500 stairs doesn't seem to enticing but this was one of the most incredible experiences of my life. It was dubbed Adams peak as it is believed that it was the first place Adam set foot on earth after being cast out of heaven. The mountain does look rather mystical as it splices up through the mist and clouds reaching for the sky and a Buddhist monastery is located at the top of the peak. After the long, painful hike up the stairs we were blessed with the most incredible views. We were well above the clouds and it all opened up as the sun rose, Buddhist monks chanted and the sounds of flutes and drums shook the cold crisp air. People young an old were up there celebrating the first day of an important Buddhist holiday period, I couldn't believe that woman and men in there 80's made it up the stairs, inspiring stuff.
