The bambarabotuwa valley in the Alupola Estate, Rathnapura is a beautiful sight on a clear day. The Pandi Oya flowing down from the Alupola falls is seen in the bottom of the valley. Far away on the hills, the Wewalwaththe tea factory is seen. The air is clear and cold. No wonder the Scottish Planters who pioneered this area built a bungalow overlooking the valley and the Alupola water falls.
