Treat the earth well. It was not given to you by your parents. It was loaned to you by your children

Wonderful report Ashan. Disturbing news about the hotel for the foreigners in the wilderness.  Angry

Hi Ashan,

Nice Report with details.
I have capmed at Thelgamu oya on a rock just beyond the natural swiming pool. It was a scary night.  Grin
Have you ever been to Sembuwatta Garden which is at Elkaduwa - Hunugala road (5KM from Elkaduwa). That is a nice place for a day out with friends and family. Park entrance ticket is 150 Rs.

Cheers,

Hi Dulip
