Hello Parakum,

Enjoyed a lot with some lovely photographs. I have been to Hirikatuoya information & educational centre in last May but couldnt proceed up hill beyond that place. I would have definitely gone if I see this report last year.  Grin

This is a very scenic road and very interesting to drive (I did drive a Volkswagen). As I remember there are no signals (week) for mobile phones after passing that wooden bridge. We camped in the Hirikatuoya camping site and climbed the rock which you could see on the way.

Thanks for sharing your nice experience. It brought some nice memories back to me as well.

Cheers,
Amila

Hi Parakum,

Once we went to Nagrak Bungalow, not by this road. From Ihala Galagama foot path. And from there to Horton Plains. Your photos refreshed my memory. Thanks for sharing trip report with nice pictures.

Hi Parakum,

Nice work and fine photos indeed. brought me back to my university days when I had a trail bike (XL125 s) and road aimlessly hunting for scenic places. In 1998, I took the "Long Road" from Matara to Bandarawela/NuwaraEliya where I did my re search.(I selected this project for the sheer thrill of exploring unknown places and while at Bandarawela I used to stay at a place very close to Priyanjan's home)

My route was Matara>Panamura>Embilipitiya>Pallebedda>Balangoda>Haputhale>Bandarawela. On my way I saw the road to 'Nonparial Estate' and thought of exploring it as I had heard of the place as where one will fall if jumped from World's End. I remember going through the winding road with many scenic views but had to turn back as a rain came and I was very late to go to Bandarawela on an unfamiliar road. I still miss the uncompleted mission (of course, unplanned too).

Thanks again Parakum for bringing those memories back and specially for nice pics. Keep up the good work but try to accompany someone if you do not mind to be more on the safe side when you explore unknown places.
