Hi Hariyo!!!!!!!!
I'm happy, for numerous reasons... You managed to finally finish your dream hike after number of mocking calls from Ashan and me  Grin, and I'm the first to comment  Wink
If I've seen a trip planned with so much precision, this is it... It looks all the pieces of the jigsaw had fallen very neatly into place...
I believe that you too were blessed by the mother nature to do this successfully as you're truly a nature lover and intend to protect her by all means, remember, "If you live by Dhamma, You'll be protected by Dhamma" and the same goes "If you love and protect Mother Nature, she'll do the same in turn for you"...
This really is a dream come true and I too wanna do this sometime with the Old Gang of Tony, Atha and possibly Sheham too...  Cry
Thanks awfully for all the helpful tips and descriptions...
Cheers

Hi Sri

Thanks for your encouraging comments. I am really impressed with those Cheesy Cheesy

Actually if i speak honest this was not only the most wanted trip of the year but also the most planned trip ever done by me so far Cool. Because from the beginning i knew a marginal error would have lead to a disaster . Shocked

 i'd say Our trip was a story written by me and we had just to play according to the script.And the great actors ( prince and Chiran + guide ) helped by all means to make this a success. Adding to that Mother nature made us a perfect stage to play our roles . Cheesy

But I would thank the former authors Such as MALAKA , Kishan, Upul, Dilhan, Malith etc for giving so much of resources and specially to our Admin who regulated all of these resources. Without their efforts we wouldn't have done this Smiley

I will be really delighted  Cheesy if anybody( specially you ) get a pinch of info from my report when they plan their own.

Cheers

HARI
