Mahaweli Ganga at Mahiyangana

Looking upstream from the bridge across the Mahaweli Ganga at Mahiyangana. This bridge was built on Canadian aid in the 1950s. Before the bridge was built it was a ferry ride to visit the Mahiyangana Sthupa.

Road to Mahiyangana

The road past Hasalaka
Approaching Mahiyangana
The road past the 18 hairpin bends towards Mahiyangana is still green in spite of the drought. This is due to the irrigation schemes functioning from ancient times and recently renovated.
