Butterfly Migration (Beg Apr - End May)
In the crisp air and sunshine, legions of brave yellow and white and jewel coloured butterflies take their final flight to the summit of Adams Peak (Sri Pada) as if these lovely evanescent creatures were in the company with the pilgrims. At the end of their ascent, they die there in waves, providing another phenomenon, hence the name Samanala Kanda meaning Butterfly Mountain.
