About Pidurutalagala in Nuwara Eliya

Also called Mount Pedro, Pidurutalagala is the tallest peak of Sri Lanka. The Pidurutalagala height is 2,524 m. It is easily distinguishable from almost all the areas in Central Province. The Government of Sri Lanka and armed forces have built their communications array on the top of the peak. The communications array contributes to the functioning of Sri Lanka’s radar system. Its role in the maintenance of communication between military persons cannot be ignored. The peak is considered as a high security risk area, which means it is off limits for the commoners. Nevertheless, it is a sight to behold. The peak features on every traveler’s wish list. The army will conduct a security check before giving you the go ahead to hike the mountain. It is mandatory for foreign travelers to present their passport at the base of Pidurutalagala because it is a military base. There are a few air force and army bases at the top. The mountain is easily accessible by road. You can take a vehicle to the top of the mountain as well. Depending on your convenience, you can choose a mode of transportation. Pidurutalagala travel is equal parts enjoyable and thrilling.

Highlights of Pidurutalagala

The panoramic views from the mountain are spectacular, for lack of a better word. Avoid visiting the mountain on a misty day and go when it is sunny to enjoy the gorgeous views. You will love the drive up to the top. If you’re climbing the peak on foot, you will enjoy an extensive range of biodiversity. Pidurutalagala hike is one of the best things to do here. The Pidurutalagala weather is pleasant for a hike. You will come across exotic flora and fauna in the journey whose beauty is unmatched. Make sure to take a lot of photographs to remember the journey. There are plenty of opportunities for sightseeing. You get sweeping views of the city and the stunning Gregory Lake. Other mountains such as Sri Pada are clearly distinguishable from the peak.

The road to the top is wide enough for vehicles to pass through. If you’re a fan of offroading, this is the perfect opportunity for you. Driving to the top is a highly enjoyable activity. There is adequate space for parking at the top. The parking is managed by Sri Lanka Army and Air Force. There are countless opportunities for panoramic photography as well. We recommend you visit early in the morning to get some gorgeous shots of the sunrise.

    Irynjah's 5 days trip to Nuwara Eliya

    The trip to Sri Lanka was a memorable one. Made new friends, enjoyed the sea food and the Ayurveda spa. However we were very disappointed with the hotels at Colombo and Bentota. The rooms were small and the bathrooms were not clean. There was hardly any space for us to move or keep our things. We were made to stay at Ceylon city hotel instead of the one that was given in the itinerary. That shouldn’t have happened. Kindly make sure it does not happen to other guests. The car ride from one province to the other was fun. Our time at Amal’s Restaurant and Villa was a pleasant surprise. Lastly, Our time at Rodeo- dancing the night away!

    I was initially happy that I got a good deal in terms of the total package considering the itenary and cost. However, I only realised later that there were a lot of compromises made to fit into the budget, for example the hotels provided were not at all upto standard and there were lot lot of things in the itenary which we had to skip because of the schedule we had. The agent either did not know what he was doing or made false promises to make the deal look good

    Sri Lanka recent trip with Tropical Ceylon was fantastic. Special mention for the tour chauffer - Sujith. He was very helpful, friendly, ensured timeliness, and made sure we had a lovely time. Even the person who helped me finalise the trip - Hoshin was very good and prompt in her response. Though there were few minor issues with Tropical Ceylon, 1) driver detailed not shared in time; 2) final invoice not shared on time, Travel Triangle was able to help in both these matters which kind of solved these concerns well within time. Since I have travelled a lot extensively across the globe, quick research on the areas to cover and hotels to stay helped me in deciding my final itinerary with the agency. Though the agency covered everything in their itinerary, I would suggest to do your research so that you enjoy your trip to the fullest. Overall, would highly recommend Tropical Ceylon / Travel Triangle for your future trips

    Abhishek's 6 days trip to Nuwara Eliya

    I just want to share my feedback Everything was unfunctional The hotels except tree of life is not upto the mark The stay was not at all gud Tour was good In santury hills,there is no chef and no amenities The entry fees as per our discussion was approx 60$ and we planned accordingly but in real it was far more which took me avoid some sightseeing because of entry fees Regarding villa@69,the room was too small like a small godown where all the things are try to be adjusted The best part of the tour is chauffeur having excellent knowledge about Srilanka and very informative 6Days in Ceylon or Srilanka is nice experience with some pros n cons. It is a country of tea, gems and tourism where government spends their revenues for the education and health of citizens and made it free for all. Lil costly for sightseeing but best for scenic beauty. Got chance to meet some great personality where I found people are very helpful and cooperative. Travel from 37degree Celsius to 10degree celsius and also got an opportunity to see the traditional dance and their costumes. Overall trip was good with nice memories.
