'Sorabora Wewa' and the 18 hairpin bends.

'Sorabora Wewa' seen before the 18 elbow bends.
Highway in the elbow bends region.
Coming down from Madugoda to the 18 hairpin bends leading to Hasalaka is a superb sight. Far away in the valley you can see the 'Sorabora Wewa' which irrigates the paddy fields around Mahiyangana.
