This picture of Poonagala hills was taken from Wellawaya. I love Wellawaya because of this scenery.
Poonagala hills are famous for its viewing points such as Lipton Seat, Millennium Point and Pilkington’s Point. Also Diyaluma falls form from the streams flowing from these hills.

I went thru' this forest, while travelling from Haputhale to Diyathalawa. Haputhale, Diyathalawa and Bandarawela known for cool and less humid climates, quite close to temperate zones in the world.
This stretch of forest is about 3-4 km. More pictures of this beautiful area is shown here.

Wellawaya is a town in Monaragala District, with access roads to Arugam Bay, Thissamaharama, Haputhale and Ella. A2 main road, which starts from Colombo, ends at Wellawaya, after passing the entire southern coastal belt. A4 road to Batticaloa also goes pass Wellawaya.
It is a beautiful place as you can see the mountains of Haputhale and Ella from there. I posted about scenic Ella and Beragala roads sometime back.
This stretch of paddyfields were seen about 5 km from the town, on the way to Buduruwagala.

I met this unusual guest recently. The photo came from a mobile phone as I was not ready for him. I have seen a few porcupines but this one was quite big. Hope someone can identify the exact specie.
The specie was identified as Indian Crested Porcupine (Hystrix indica), thanks to Bushana.
