  • It was my first visit to Piduruthalagala. Map shows a very narrow road to the entrance. But, there is a much better road. At the entrance, you have to fill a form regarding your vehicle and passengers, which should be then handed over to armed forces personnel . Then you can drive to the top of the mountain. There is a good car park with ample parking. It is so windy on the top with a picturesque view. It nice to have a coffee with hot rottee. There is temple as well , which is said to be blessing for children who sit for grade 5 scholarship.
  • It's a magical place. If there was a viewing point it would be more magical. Nevertheless we had a great time there. The drive to the top of the piduruthalagala is mesmerizing too.
  • Swim in the mist. Nice landscape. Eat roti from military welfare canteen
  • The highest point in sri lanka. You can drive the vehicle to the top.need to give the details of the vehicle at the base. The road to the top is beautiful . The view from the top is breathtaking and good for photographs. Theirs small shop where you can enjoy a hot tea with pol rotti.
  • AMAZING! Can climb the mountain and for those who find it inconvenient ,they can go to the very top from the vehicle itself . There's a small shop done by the Sri Lankan army which serves hot tea and coffee which is great with the cold weather Please do like this if it was of any help!! Thanks
