  • Must see place. One of the highest points in Nuwara Eliya. Well motorable. But do not litter. Entry is by permit which tends to be tedious but then who cares if one is on a holiday.
  • Great place with great nature. We shoud protect the nature..
  • The highest mountain of Sri Lanka. I was lucky to visit a very clear day on to the summit. Panoramic view of 360 degrees. You can clearly see Adam's Peak from one side through the other mountains. Also Kirigalpotta 2nd highest peak of the country and Thotapla beleived to be 3rd one can be seen with Agra range and along with Horton Plains and Ambewela area. And Cronical Hill too from the same side. Someone clearly identify Nuwaraeliya city and Gregory's Lake in close. The other side you can see Ramboda hills and far beyond may be up to Knuckles range. Also Mandaramnuwara area can be seen sometimes with thick cloud.
  • There's a road leading to the almost top of the mountain so you can drive your own vehicle.At the point where vehicle ride is no more allowed there's an Airforce barrack where you need to prove your identity and buy tickets.Then you can park your vehicle and and climb a very short distance untill you reach the top.
