I have to do a confession before writing this trip report. This trip was arranged by Sri with Some other lakdasun members on 23rd Saturday using Sri’s old Strategy, Face book conversations. I had notified my absence In advance as I had to report duty on Saturday. But I was free on 22nd Friday. Due to various reasons most of the other members also confirmed their absence expect the little boy Tony. So that trip was postponed. I just rang Sri On Thursday asking whether he is free on Friday. He replied yes and we were initially planning to do Mathugama Waterfalls. And Sri Had promised other members including Tony to Do Neluwa waterfalls together some other day.
When the trip date came I picked Sri from Embuldeniya at 5.00a.m . We had lot of time so suggested Sri “Machan Mathugamatama Yana Eke Neluwa Diya eli tika Balamuda. Wenadawasaka Mathugama Diya Eli Balamu”. I didn’t want to miss a chance as I am most probably working on weekends and get leave on week days. Learning from resent experiences going trips as a group was becoming a nightmare to me. Sri De Maname Queen Couldn’t resist my savages request and forgot all the promises given to Maname Prince Tony and others. So keeping Poor Tony crying in his office we went on memorable waterfall hunting at Sinharaja.
After this Trip Sri got some life threatening calls from other party. He requested me to write this report. That’s how HARI came on to action
We had breakfast after passing pelawatta and came to Kosmulla 9.30 a.m.
This Entrance gate was closed when went there at 8.45 a.m. As ethical travelers we waited till 9.15 a.m. Since nobody came we just entered the forest by a week point of fence.
Kosmulla Dooli Ella consists of three parts.
There was a foot path upwards from the third fall. We just travel some distance .but path was vanished after some time .so were turned back. The funny officials were had not still come to the office . So we said goodbye dooli ella for giving us a free tour and headed towards Lankagama
The road from Kosmulla to Lankagama (10.75 km) is in moderate conditions. Some sections are difficult to travel with ordinary car .But Not Impossible
We had a safe bath at a safe place at the bottom then came back to the entrance .As we had already ordered lunch from nearby house we went there had a hearty diet.
It was just 2.00 p.m. We had enough time to even visit Pitadeniya which was 4km from here .But there were some dark clouds gathering. So we hurried up and returned back soon. We stopped at few places to have some snacks and relax. Our final resting place was Egoda uyana Railway station. We came back home by 6.00 p.m.
