During my recent visit to Sinharaja rainforest, I climbed Mulawella mountain, which is one of the highest points in the reserve. This peak is about 2500 feet high and it is one of the easier trails in Sinharaja. The round trip trail from the entrance of the forest reserve and back is about 6 - 7 kilometers.

The view from top of Mulawella is one of the best you can ever get within Sinharaja. I shall upload more pictures soon.

I would certainly come here often, to take in the beauty that the land resonates. It gives a sense of feeling what it is like to become One with Nature and our surroundings.

Yes..the climax of the trail is getting this bird's eye view :)

Yes big clouds but faraway. That is why the view was very clear that day.

There are quite a few photos from this point. I'll upload them soon :)

Natural Moments,
This is a great place to enjoy the beauty of nature! The guide who came with us mentioned that he is coming there almost every day but each day he find something new about this place and the view :)

Thanks very much!

Glad you've decided to come this way. Sri Lanka is not a 'very expensive' place to visit.. but all depends on the itnerary, hotels you select.
I can help you on the specifics..just drop me an email - kirigalpoththa@yahoo.com :)

It's my first time hearing the name of this peak. But the scenery is simply stunning. And with all that green and blue tones.. it kinda appear like a well balanced painting.

PS: you seem to be coming up with more aesthetically enriched captures. Cool work!

Kirigalpoththa said...

Thanks..That is a comment I can be proud of :D

Didnt try much but tried to capture the 360 degree view from here. So took about 20 - 30 pictures.. So a few came up quite nicely regardless of my photography techniques :))
