Hi Kavindu,
Welcome to Lakdasun trip publishing section. Beautiful report for the start. Love your captures of trains. You refreshed my memories on same journey through Thangamale bird sanctuary. We also were not able to enter Adhisham bunglow as it is closed. I appreciate your finer points about behaving at a tunnel. And agreed with the idea of doing rail hike as small groups. It avoid attractions of others, specially railway people.

Hi Kavindu

Thanks for sharing your wonderful experience with colorful photographs.
It reminds my memories about Adhisham and Idalgashinna.
You guys might don't know that the easiest path to the Beragala Mountain is located in Thangamale sanctuary.
If you can please add more and more photos of your journeys in future reports.

Hi Kavindu

it refreshed the rail hike I did from Haputhale - Idalgashinna & Adisham visit 3 yrs ago.
In my rail hike I could hike to the ridge of the mountain just before Idalgashinna to enjoy the beauty of southern part of the country.
lovely photographs, thanks for sharing your experience.

Hello Members

Though walking on a railway is prohibited we see many are engaged in this activity and the worst thing is that it is published in a public forum as well. My humble thought is that we are setting a bad precedence to others by engaging in illegal activities. Since Lakdasun is a public forum, we might be setting bad examples to others/readers. My worry is that we can't ask others to not to do unethical things when we are publicly doing such things. Is this open for debate?
I think what I'm trying to convey is that we shouldn't do or encourage to do any illegal and unethical behaviour and we should lead by example to raise better awareness at all time.

Cheers
