Hi Nishan
wow, superb journey and I'm yet to do this trail (makes me wonder how much is left in this country for me to see Smiley)
Great narration with good pics...
Talking about those prices displaying in shops, we saw the same thing on Palabaddala Road... understandably the prices are relatively more the higher you go. We talked to a few shops and they have to pay a lot of money for the goods to be carried uphill...
Cheers

Thank you all for the appreciations and encouragement. Of course Lakdasun helps a lot to organize tours and I really appreciate the people who behind this web page. Smiley

is this your first report on Lakdasun?

No there was another one which also one of the best that I could capture from camera. Smiley

http://trips.lakdasun.org/a-2-day-trip-to-walpolamulla-atanwala-pitawala-riverston-to-experience-the-beauty-of-the-nature-and-to-see-the-most-historic-set-of-villages-in-riverston-area.htm

My opinion is that; whenever possible we go on a trip, we should naturalize it as much as possible and be lived with it. Then we can feel the nature and sense it a lot more than we think. Those who feel it will never destroy it but love it more and more.

Thank you all again.

Hi Nishan,
Thanks for sharing your experience with us. Seems you have done climbing up more leisurely to enjoy the nature and getting down more fast. Isn't it?

Hi Niroshan,
Yes we did climb up more leisurely to enjoy the nature and climbed down via hatton route because of the time limitation we had and also there is no much nature to enjoy at hatton side because so much of it has already been destroyed. However It is always better to have more time to spend in between such as stay in an "Ambalama" for couple of hours and rest. Some people do that and they enjoy the climb so much. With continuous walk, we get tired sometimes. It was really beautiful on kuruwita side.
