Hi Roshan,
Thanks for your comment. There is a good path to peak-2 from main camp site. We got down from peak-2 to Pundalu oya side.
Not from main camp site.

Hi Niro

This is a hike in my list too. I have done Great Western from Uda Radella Mountain.
Most of hikers doesn't go to the actual peak of GW, but you did it.
Thanks for sharing your wonderful journey and this might helpful for me to have my hike.

Hi Ashan,
Thanks for your comment. Those days we were lack in experience and less amount of technology used. Credit should go to you to bring me this peak 8 years ago.
