Hi Ashan

Woooow what a trip report!
Super. Fabulous pictures as well.

Just one question. If it's so hard to get to Yahangala, how come they kept King Ravana's body there for people to pay homage to?
Or has the landscape changed a lot since then?

Still, nice story and absolutely stunning place!

Thanks for helping us see the beauty too.

Best regards

The thing is though its a tough climb for the modern day man it wasnt a tough hike for the ancient man(we are going on the wrong track of evolution currently  Grin Grin )
the local who we met said he can climb the rock in 20minutes(probably from the stone pillar side)

Hello Ashan,

Exceptionally beautiful trip report with matching fotos.

One addition about King Rawana. It is believed that King Rawana did not die but became unconscious. His body is hidden in the rock, laid on his left side. In 2012, he is supposed to turn to right side. (You selected a good time to be there Smiley). His awakening will take place in future date.

The rock may be the place you visited.

Thanks for sharing
