Our journey was started at around at 4.00 am from Digana. In around 8hrs, we could reach Nuwara Eliya. To reach Horton plains, it took another 4 hours.
Riding bicycles on those hilly roads were somewhat difficult, but it was a life time experience for us. Climatic condition in Nuwara Eliya during December and January is cold and dry. Therefore, it is better to arrange your journey during December.
Prior approval is essential (at least one month before) from Department of wildlife conservation to Camp at Horton Plains. Address: Udyana Mawatha, Sri Jayawardenepura Kotte

Before start the journey, check the condition of your bicycle, because riding on downward steep slope is really dangerous.
