Bicycle ride in Kukuleganga

Yes I know that its over a week ago. Was busy and lazy to type.

Kukuleganga resort rents mountain bicycles to its visitors. One bicycle will be 200 LKR (about 1.75 USD).

The time was right after lunch. And I was not in a mood to relax, after a tiresom day of climbing a rock and crossing a suspension bridge. I didn’t want to go back to the room. Sat on a chair waiting the time to pass by so I can convince my friends to go for a swim. Yes I am a pain still they do adore me.

However when someone said that “they rent out bikes” I was the first to sprint out and convince this 16 year old guy and my Peruvian friend to come for a ride. So we got in three bikes and went out to the winding roads of kukuleganga. We cycled up to 2km and the roads were well carpeted and of cause full of mountains. Was tired and decided to return to the resort.

No didn’t forget to take some shots

And of cause met a cow and her calf.. she gave me a look as to warn “do not come near my child”

We returned to Kukuleganga resort, had some water and decided that we should take another route.

And there we entered the land of mystery. Best of Sri Lankan beauty.

It was a small road, more like a pathway going in to a rubber estate. About two meters wide and no concrete. Just red soil. And no sign of human life, at that moment. Just us three rides, mesmerized by this place.

Then we came to a halt where a small stream was flowing and sort of a valley surrounded by mountains. The moment was relaxing. So we clicked away.
