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.

    Faisal's 7 days trip to Nuwara Eliya

    Everything mentioned in the package was to the point as agreed. Hotels, places, cab, driver, timings were all as per our requirement considering we have an infant. During the trip Ravisha (Udani tours) was easily available for any queries and assistance. Here is my comments Minus: 1. Some places a
    re still closed or partially closed due to COVID, so the tour operator should pre inform or remove them from the itinerary to save traveling time. Floating market and Lotus tower for example, none the less i enjoyed Colombo for its cleanliness and pollution free environment. 2. Driver needs to improve his English for better communication on future trips. Provided his communication was better we would have managed better movement Plus 1. My accommodation in Bentota was booked as a sea view room and i did not get that. I spoke to Ravisha and immediately she was able to give me the same category room in a hotel near by which was according to me a better one. Really impressed with the quick response. 2. Driver was polite and friendly which made us feel comfortable throughout the trip. 2 hotels had hot water issues. Possibly due to COVID hotel readiness might not be 100%.

    Anurag's 8 days trip to Nuwara Eliya

    Good experience overall. Driver had asked for extra cash two times. Second time it was asked after a trip was taken and there was a scene created in front of hotel staff which was uncalled for. This could have been handled properly and systematically to avoid hostility for a few days. Also, money he
    charged after supposedly an extra trip was 1000 bucks above his own mentioned per km charges. This made our last few days not so good.
