Wellawaya


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.

Looks so much like my home town near Kanyakumari in India and at the foothills of the Western Ghats!

Sankara,

Think you passed thru' Wellawaya during your first visit to SL. I guess you went to Thissa from World's end...

Kanyakumari must be a beautiful place. :)

Best,
