I've been very close to this area many times, but never knew the existence of this place. Must visit place next time.

Well done Dr.

Hello Doc

Wow, a nice place and just can't believe what we have in SL... We practically got everything the world has...
It's a great pity that we don't use these areas to the betterment of the country by promoting them wisely instead of destroying our natural resources...
We actually have a lot to learn in terms of tourism from other countries coz they promote things which are in fact not worth seeing at all compared to what we have...

Thanks for the share and good to see you're doing videos... Amila seemed obsessed with the Saddhathissa Wewa and next time give him the chance to do a video  Grin

Cheers
Sri

P.S. Congratulations on being a father...

Hi Ashan Smiley

Sorry I was out of circulation and only now was able to enjoy your wonderful trip report of Aliens Wink

Fully agree with others about non utilization of our glaring resources for promotion of tourism. On the other hand, sheer ignorance of our policy makers is the only reason that saves these wonderful places for (hopefull) more advanced green future generation. If known the potential, they would have sold one acre plots of land from the top of that mountain to their friends to build hotels!!!. If that happens only Aliens can save the place. Grin

Awaiting your report on the cave paintings.

Thank you very much for sharing your wonderful experience.
