Ritigaha Oya


Ritigaha Oya is a tributary of River Kelani. It is the main water resource in Bulathkohupitiya area. The same stream is the principal source for many waterfalls like Rukmal Ella and Nalangana Ella.

This scenery was captured on the way to Dedugala from Bulathkohupitiya.

Water sculpts the landscape into unique and wondrous forms. What shall we become when we let the water flow effortlessly in, through, and over our being. We shall become beautiful like the landscape.

Waterfalls are so nice and relaxing, I wonder if this is where your hike, from previous blog, took you. A nice place.
