'Saama Chaithya' to the Kurundu Oya waterfall, Walapane, Sri Lanka.

Going up the steep mountain on a four wheel drive with many hairpin bends to negotiate was a thrilling experience. The scenery was superb.

Sights from the Japanese buillt 'Saama Chaithya', Walapane, Sri Lanka.

The 'Saama Chaithya'
The garden with a stone  stela with etched Japanese characters
A view of the Walapane town from the site of the 'Chaithya'. 'Auslink Hotel' where we stayed two nights is seen  on the left bottom of the picture.
The 'Randenigala' reservoir seen from the 'Saama Chaiithya'
On an early morning, the mist covered hills and the dew covered greenery with the sight of the 'Randenigala' reservoir, takes one to another  world. The cool scented air and the silence are experiences of a  lifetime.
