Ambuluwawa Mountain Hill | Biodiversity complex | Tourist spot | Gampola
Distance: 16.5 km
Ambuluwawa mountain is considered one of the must visit places in the Gampola area and although its a hard journey some people do climb the mountain on foot. Luckily for me we were able to higher a van to go to mountain top. It is somewhat a steep mountain so even in a van sometimes its not possible to go the full distance. However the journey is worth it because it offers one of the most beautiful scenes you can ever see.
Ambuluwawa was built as a symbol of religious harmony in Sri Lanka and you can find a temple, a church, a Hindu kovil and a mosque there. The great thing is you can go to the top of the Dagoba in the mountain giving you a feeling of being in the sky. Although not considered a top tourist attraction in Sri Lanka it does attract some tourists and everyday lots of locals visit there. There is a beautiful landscaped garden for you to spend some time and you can get some amazing picture from the top of the mountain. A great place to visit if you are in Gelioya.
