It is a nice Scenic area surrounded by mountains and not very far from Kandy. Not very crowded, need at least two days to enjoy the beauty of the area.

Certainly not the the highest mountain one could climb, but it offers you a great view and you will feel like climbing!. Make sure you have suitable footwear, something to drink and some basic fitness. Even young children can make it.
