A 360 ° view of the mountain, easily accessible, with memories of Mount Hawagala in Sri Lanka.

January 2020 · 3 min read · Balangoda

Hello everyone, welcome back. This time I'm going to share beautiful memories of my past hike experience where I traveled Hawagala mountain located Sabaragamu province. We used to reach the Hawagala mountain via Balangoda - Belihuloya, reaching the village of Landuyaya and crossing the mountain.

The Hawagala mountain is rich in beautiful streams during the rainy season and there is no permanent source of water.

If someone intend to cross the Hawagala using public transport, you can first board a bus to Balangoda and then take a bus to Landuyaya. As you know, a bus is only once an hour.

There was little water stream. It was pure water. Nice to watch beautiful landscape. The climate was too warm. The sunlight roughly attacked us. But perfect for our walk.

The road was not difficult because there was no rain. We had to climb the mountain cautiously, as it was an area full of animals, including leeches, snakes, and pigs. Most of times I had attacked by the leeches.

We continuously walk ahead. Then I caught beautiful landscape click. We could see another mountain range since here. During the rainy season on the top of the mountain there is a small pond and the water is clean enough to drink. Hawagala is a place where you can easily get a 360 ° view of many mountains.

I saw another little bit water flow. During the rainy season, these small streams become waterfalls and drain down.

The Hawagala hill is a widespread plain. There are many mountain ranges including Samanala lake and love hill. In our own words, we can look forward to that beautiful windswept valley in the cold breeze. There's so much beauty in that scene that goes to the top of the Hawagala.
