Hi NG,

There is no specific period but august, september could be 2 better months because of the drought and the access and getting across causeways  can be  much easier.

Hi Asiri,

Learnt much n thank you very much for sharing the experience.
BTW,
Didn't you have to cross many Aru(s) on your return journey via Kotiyagala ?.
What I feel is return journey was easier than the route through Yala blocks 1,2,3... Huh Huh
Pls. clarify
This is important since Kabiliththa is one of my dream pilgrim.

Hi Viraj,

Yes it is easier to go from Monaragala through Kotiyagala and there are no ara's if I remember right but the road can get real muddy at places specially during wet season. But the good thing is you do not have to go through water which is the difficult part. This is a must go place Viraj. Try to make it sometime.

Hi Asiri,

Thanks for rolling back the years and doing this report for the benefit of all of us who still have not had the privilege of making this journey Sad. Yearning to do this one day as and when time permits.
BTW, doesn't the rituals allow women to go there as I saw males only in all these reports Huh? Maybe the sheer difficulty of the tour is a discouraging factor Smiley.

Hi Jayathu,

Thanks for reading the report. Yes you must make it sometime. There is no restriction for taking women but because there could be issues regarding being clean etc and due to lack of basic facilities most of the people don't encourage.
