Panorama of East


This exquisite panorama was captured at Buddhangala near Ampara. I have seldom seen a view so vast yet so clear.

Please click the image to enlarge it. More similar views from the same venue are uploaded here.

I fully agreed with you after enlarging the picture.

Harumi said...

Wow.. that's an amazing view! Almost like Tantirimale, but there seem to be more trees here than out there. =D

Great capture!

Buddhangala is a very magical place. The access road by bike from Ampara is wonderful.

What a beautiful panorama! I think I would want to stay there. I really like the picture in your slide show with the mountain tops above the mist.

Steven D!,
Greetings from Sri Lanka!, Yep that was a never ending view..

Michelle,
That big white thing in one picture does look like a bell! It is called a Chethiya, stupa or Dagobo and it is a sacred place of worship found in any Buddhist temple. This particular dagabo is made like a bell! You can find more details of Sri Lankan dagabos in this post by Harumi.

Rainfield,
Yes I did not attach the original picture which is about 4MB; still this resized image shows a lot of details.

Harumi,
I would be able to give some details about Thanthirimale soon. Yes, the view is very similar to Thanthirimale.

Chavie,
The fields look very nice from there. I particularly like this picture with fields + ‘wewa’

James,
It is a beautiful area, but this particular place lies about 250km away from where I live :)

Clo,
Yep the horizon look infinite…:)

Álvaro,
Yep that was taken in the hillcountry and completely different climate and geography.

Pierre,
Yep I could not do a bike trip there but as you said it would be a very good ride. In fact I wanted to go there, after seeing one of your posts on the same place some time back :)

Betsy,
Yep, it is a fascinating view from there. You really get that wow feeling :)

Sunny,
Yep, it is miles and miles of never ending view :)

NicoleB,
The country is not that big..I would say medium size island! But there are many places like this where you can see a good half of the entire country :)

Betchai,
Definitely you can do panorama pictures here. I must learn that sometime :)

Gallicissa,
You will love the view and this peaceful surrounding for sure!

George,
Yep, I too like that picture. I shall bring you more photos of this area soon!

Thanks all for your wonderful comments!
