We started form the Colombo at about 3;00 PM in the Evening. The crew was Nine in two jeeps. I was driving mine and Deepal was driving his, both jeeps were packed with gear and rations for night nights.
First night we were planning to stay in Kandy at Deepals bungalow and since it was perahara season getting out of Colombo were deficit with lots of traffic heading towards Kandy and we ook a quick decision to proceed via Jaela/minuwangoda/Giriulla/Kurunagala/Katugasthota/Kandy, drive was superb with very little traffic (route slightly longer than Colombo kandy main road 20Km longer) Good road network, you wont feel the drive.
Next morning we departed after B’fast with our lunch packed, on our way we stopped for tea in one of the restaurants passing Mathale and I had this picture of a dragon fruit tree.
Our next stop was Polonnaruwa rest house for a drink and ladies break
We had lunch on pictures location in the tank bed.
Polonnaruwa to passikudha drive was great; rods were in very good condition
