Hi Priyanjan,

Thank you very much.

Do you know what happened to the broken down vehicle you met?
Would like to know.
Priyanjan.

As per their words, they had some contact with the management of Udaweriya Estate. That was one of the reasons to let the jeep alone with out doubt. How ever we met them again while continuing their journey with a hired cab, at the 3 way junction close to Ohiya.

Hi Jayathu,

This is one of my dream treks Wink. Must do one day very soon.

This is worth doing pal,
It's wise to do the exploration with 2 vehicles since some part of the track is out of mobile coverage.
 
Thanks for the encouraging comment as usual.

Hello Viraj,
No words.. Shocked . You did it.
At second Lakdasun gathering me and supun did the same by supun's bike . But return to Bambarakanda.
I can remind Priyanjan's advice at that time. This time also it is same.
Ever since I first traveled on that road, I've been thinking how difficult it would be to attend to a vehicle repair on that road.

Nice report again. Thanks for getting back that memories again.

Regards,

WHA!!
This must also be fantastic on mo-bikes! A trail bike to be precise!
Can't get over how much there is to see and do in just 64,000 sq km.

Hi Viraj;

A nice and exciting report with excellent pictures.

Seems your old war-horse doing very well despite old age. Have you fitted a new engine??

and....
I was always wondering why do not you fix a full canopy Huh, may be real excitement or thrill.

Any way, all the best for U and UR war-horse.
