Hi Niro

We complete Hegasulla and Randenigala range in a one day as a little group Wink
We reached to Hegasulla around 9.30am and to the highest peak of Randenigala around 3.00pm and we returned through the same path within 2 hours due to elephant risk.
Because we saw some elephants over the plain.
Thanks for your report as I got the name of the plain from this report.

Hi Ranshan,
Thanks for your comment. It is nice to hear that you also have been there. I have seen some pictures at facebook. BW I didn't see any pictures of Padupola there. Though I expected elephants didn't come across them.

Hi Niro

We followed the same path as you followed.
We didn't published many photos on FB even in or page.
I will write up trip report will all of them in future.
However I noticed that the real name of the Hegasulla mountain is Aggasulla as per the SD map.

BTW as I told to Keshan I'm expecting to join with you for any other hikes at VRR  Wink

I also thought the real name is Agasulla and Ashan introduced this mountain as Agasulla. But people at Theripaha called it as Hagasulla. No one knows Agasulla.  Huh
