The Wangedigala and Wangedigala Kanda are two different peaks and we were not aware of that. Thanks to Mrs.Sera and her daughter we were able to spot the two peaks and were able to learn the difference.

Most people confused about Wangedigala and Wangedigala Kanda.

This trip is always memorable in my life as it was the first trip which opened doors to many trips.

So people can see what was the previous state of the places,roads and etc.
