|Travel Tips, Travel Notes and Special remarks|
This travelogue is dedicated to my team Members and My lovely Wife.
Exciting journey Bomburu ella ended around 5.00PM and we returned to Welimada and bought food items and when we started the journey towards Beragala it was dusk. From Beragala we took Ohiya road and when we were driving towads Ohiya it was dark and misty. From Udaweria – Horton Plains Junction (Near Udaweria board) we had to to take a left turn and after 1KM drive we came across a very old house when we passed that we came across a board saying “Lower Bray Estate”. From this point onwards road was not in good condition and low ground clearance vehicle cannot make this bit. We couldn’t see any scenery and slept early after a tiring day. Next morning we got up early and when reached Hill Safari Lodge’s so called Dondra View point it was Dawn.
After the Sunrise we couldn’t beleive our eyes it felt we were in heaven. We were able to see Balathoduwa and Gonmolli Kanda in Distance and the view was magnificiant.
It was a view towards infinity across the valley. We also saw Udaweria tea factory and the surroundings it was breathtaking scenery.
Hill Safari Eco Lodge is a compact bungalow in Lower Bray Estate, in Ohiya, a 50-acre tea plantation situated in the gap between Udaweria and Ohiya estates, with the elevation of nearly 7,500 feet.
