Hi Ashan
That was a very nice trip and you'd had a very good guide after all...
It reminds me of our Nilgala Trip and Makandawa camping too...
Those Atamba looks delicious...

Hi Ashan,
A tough hike. But it looks effortless for you.
Surrounding sceneries are wonderful.
It's actually a blessing to spend some time in a ' five star rest house' of that type.
Thanks for the share.
Best Regards,
