This monarch of a rock is one of the prominent sights from the top of Sri Pada. Those who travel from Palabaddala or Kuruwita will see many of its colossal elevations along those trails. Its singular appearance is further buoyed by its tremendous precipice.
This mountain, known as Kunudiya Parvathaya is situated within the peak wilderness area, west of Sri Pada. It juts out from the low country in one sheer, unbroken slope, to a height of over 5,000 feet above sea level. During the sun rise, the shadow of the Sri Pada Mountain could be seen hovering over this mountain like a gigantic triangular silhouette.
