Along Thelgamu Oya


Above picture was taken while hiking along Thelgamu Oya to reach Sara Ella. Oya is a local name for tributary or Creek. More pictures are stored here.

We saw another small waterfall on the way. I think it is known as Punchi or Ihala Sara Ella. (Small or Upper Sara Falls)

Lovely!

Rajesh,
Thanks a lot!

Nicole,
There were many similar places full of greenery along the river. Thanks for your comments.

Beauty! I'm trying hard to persuade my work mates to go on this very same expedition, hope they'll agree! :-)

Another soul soothing view.

Where there is water, there is a view to experiencing new earth beneath our feet.

Carol said...

Mysterious and lush! Has me wanting to walk over to the edge! Beautiful and warm I imagine!!

Amila,
Try to have a team of 6-8 members. Do not make it more than that. Otherwise it'll be difficult to have a good time in this type of journeys. Best of luck with the trip. Let me know if you want more help.

Dejemonos,
Thanks mate for your comments.

Rainfield,
Glad you like it :)

Natural Moments,
Agree with you. It is more adventuorous when you have to travel through water ways.

Carol,
Thanks a lot for your comments. We had to descend over the ledge to reach at the falls. Quite a good journey!

Thanks all for your comments.

That's a beautiful place.
I would like to sit down on these rocks and listen to the river...

Frieda,
Thanks very much for your comments

Chavie said...

Looks lovely, K! Hope you're having fun this long weekend. :D

Kirigalpoththa said...

Chavie,
I will not be able to do anything interesting this long wkend due to work but planning to make amends next week somewhere in Lower Ohiya ( Most probably will have to ask for few days leave from office:p )

Gallicissa said...

Have fun at Lower Ohiya!
That area holds great promise for your hikers. I avoided a long weekend bird trip to Jaffna. (Too much travelling.)

Kirigalpoththa said...

Gallicissa,
Yep, Lower Ohiya is one of the best area for hikers! I also missed a few chances to go to Jaffna. Didn't have enough time to block 3-4 days. Thanks a lot for your comments.

Hi KP Beautiful, you photo reminded me to take a break from the lab and go for a ride (bicycle). I just saw blue sky (we having a storm) :). No hiking but plenty of skiing for me this weekend. I am going snowboarding in 40-100 inches of powder( where I will be for next 3 days )If the highways are open I will go tonight otherwise tomorrow. Enjoy your upcoming trip

George said...

This is a beautiful creek -- I would imagine that a hike along it would be very enjoyable. Of course, I also like the waterfall.

this spot looks aesome...great natural retreat

Amaris in Wonderland said...

Great capture!! What a beautiful area...

I'd love to disappear just beyond the ledge, myself. It's interesting that your path led through the stream, as opposed to beside it. Very cool!

Kirigalpoththa said...

Magerata,
Wow what a great area - Alpine Meadows. Hope you are having a fab time over there. Just came back from Lower Ohiya.

George,
Yes, it was a very adventurous one.
Thanks a lot.

Learnersreference.com,
Thansk very much.

Nicole said...

I really enjoy the lush greenery and the virtual hikes you take us on.
I can almost smell the air and the water.
Beautiful!

Kirigalpoththa said...
