More Bird’s Eye Views

Last time I had a similar view up on the top of Sri Pada Mountain. This picture was taken on the way from Thalawakele to Punduluoya.

Yes, tis a beautiful valley.

I got the same feeling when I was there.

You are absolutely correct!

Not that high but yes, the views are quite good from here too.

Thanks all for your comments!

I love this! Is that a farm below? It looks like there are footpaths or perhaps passages where water runoff may have formed the interesting designs in the grass. It's lovely.

Great picture of the valley, K.... You were WAY up there, weren't you????? LOVE the photo.. Thanks!!!

Malay-Kadazan girl,
Many thanks for dropping by and for your comments.:)

Yes there are so much to explore in our small country..

It is a small farm village below. All those green grassy land are actually paddyfields. Also you have lot of footpaths across the paddyfields for farmers to walk around their fields. Those are the small lines, we see across the grassy fields in the picture.

Yes, these are the best places to live in Sri Lanka, but you should be ready to live a simple life away from city's luxuries :)

Yes, the deal is still on. Let us do a trip together soon :)

Thanks very much!

agree with you, that is the best part and the reward of hiking.

Thanks a lot!

Yes, you can just sit and observe what is happening in that village from the above. :)

Thanks all for your wonderful comments!

Kirigalpoththa said...

Yes, I think it is more than 1000feet above the farm village. Glad you like the photo! Thanks a lot for your comments :)

Harshi said...

Wow.. those are terraced paddy fields right? Everything looks so small. Great capture!

Kirigalpoththa said...

Thanks a lot for your comments.

Yep they are, but not as terraced as this one here. Thanks for your comments.
