Hi Niroshan

You guys tried to bring some new destination for us.
Really appreciate your attempt.
It is nice to see the hidden waterfalls in Adams Peak.

Hi,
Good attempt..!!
Every time I visit Sripada peak, I see these two misty mountain peaks( Bena samanala and Kunudiya pawwa).
Is there any one in Lakdasun forum who has climbed Bena samanala or Kunudiya parwathaya?

Buddhika

Hi Niro,

Great... Its a great experience you can utilize on your next attempt. Its the beauty of these hikes. Unexpected situations/scenarios-Scenario planning-decision making.
We can learn management here. Thanks for sharing the experience.

oh, I wonder how you got to know it.
Yes I planned to get down to Lihini hela but still its pending due to date arrangements.
As I know there is no one got down to the real ground level of Lihini Hela.
I want to explore that area and walk along the water stream of Mapalana waterfall to see the unseen large waterfalls.

hi Niro
failed attempts do teach us many lessons! you learn more when you fail. can you remember when we attempted gommolliya in 2009 we did fail at that time but i did climb it eventually.
aw great effort.

Hiya Niro

Brave attempt and this is one of the few places remaining to be explored and brought to the public...

You did the right thing in the end coz there's always a tomorrow and the most important thing is to come back in one piece.... So good luck for the next time...

Talking about the Russians, they have a habit of turning up at awkward places at awkward times  Wink

Cheers
