   I have always met  average number of devotees going up and down on Hatton Nallathanniya route .  Only a few were found on Ratnapura Palabaddala  Rajamavatha.

On Nallathanniya route, it would take about 03 hours and 30 minutes to reach  the summit of the Adams Peak from the place called Nallathanniya.

It took 05 hours and 45 minutes to climb down  on Rathnapura Palabaddala route.

The weather condition was very good… cold and almost no wind.
