Hi Dilhan Smiley

It really is an educational trip report which refreshes memory.

Fotos too are attractive.

Thanks for sharing.

Very informative, Dilhan,
and better late than never!

The video is really good. how did you get it?

You seem to have visited just a few months before floods destroyed the Randenigala bridge. Sri's trip report has some photos of the destroyed bridge.
Does anyone know if it has been re built - it was not about a  year ago.

Also - would anyone have any photos of the Victoria Falls that was there before the project? it was supposed to have been about 10m tall and very pretty.

Hi Dilhan,

I have been to Victoria. But not on the DAM. You are lucky to walk on the the Dam.
Thanks for documentary too.

Hi Dilhan

So this is your birthday gift to us  Smiley

We missed seeing her in full flow very narrowly and as NG mentioned saw the fury of water at Randenigala... Even I'm not sure if that bridge was re-built...

Thanks for the share

Sri

P.S. Doctor, do share if you happen to get any info on boat services
