This is the first time we visited to Riverseturn. That was windy season for Riverstone and best time to visit. The breathtaking surroundings, strong cool winds and challenging hikes. But the pitawala pathana was very dry at that time. According to the local persons, they didn’t get rain from 2-3 months. You can see how dry it was. We visited to Thelgamuwa oya for bath but we saw not enough water for that. Then we visited to Sera fall. We didn’t see large and beautiful water fall because of lack of rain.
We started our journey from Colombo and all the crew members gathered at our office. We used one of crew member’s(Amalka) van as vehicle. We stayed at Longvilla Bungalow at night and it was a good place. Next day morning we were back in Colomobo.
