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.

    Dayspring's 4 days trip to Nuwara Eliya

    We had a great holiday with Travel Triangle. I was worried how they are going to manage our big group. But as promised they made sure everything was taken care on timely manner. Geeth is the man behind the scene, he was very helpful & co-ordinating while planning my Trip, while I was in trip too. I would higlhly recommend them for anyone looking out a trip to Sri Lanka.

    Quotations received in adequate numbers. Agents were responsive and helped us in customising the tour as per our expectations. But some agencies quoted without looking at the preferences given by us. So they were irrelevant and had to be rejected. Travel triangle website however needs to be improved. The rejected quotes must not appear again and again. The chat box does not work properly and you continue to see notification prompt even after we have cleared it ( this was observed in mobile app ). Balance all fine.

    Shivali's 9 days trip to Nuwara Eliya

    Rating - 3 Shanil was our agent from travco and helped us chose and built an itinerary. however, the complete job post-payment was left to Janaka, our driver. Every time we reached out for a question- we were told to consult Janaka, Janaka drove well and showed up on time always, however, he did not explain the itinerary properly, talked rudely, asked us not to ask questions, skipped few spots like a strawberry garden, botanical garden, we weren't given the fee massage as promised, and the city tour was from inside the car. He forced us to go to places of his choosing - like gemstone showrooms where he might be getting a commission. He also made unexpected stops in the trip to lunch places of his choice, rather than ours. He also told us to walk to nine arc bridge when cars were going. The price quoted by Travco for activities like Whale watching and Yala safari was 2X more than the market price. We went with outside vendors and had a great experience - saw 2 leopards as well Hotels given were very good expect Galadari who had a really bad buffet for a 5 star Otherwise, Sri Lanka is very beautiful and we enjoyed the trip.

    Narendra's 8 days trip to Nuwara Eliya

    The booking experience and the trip experience were both good. Though travel triangle was not much involved in any of the pre or post booking process. Infact after I raised the travel request on travel triangle platform, it took them a lot of time to respond back. Even after the booking was completed, some vital information like mandatory e-visa needs to be applied for Sri Lanka, this information was not communicated properly by travel triangle folks. Overall a very good experience with the vendor on the land package but an ok experience with travel triangle.
