During Tamil and Sinhala New Year Kay and I took a 5 day road trip down to the southeastern corner of Sri Lanka. Sri Lanka is so hot this time of year most people head up into the mountains for the cool weather. We had other plans. With the monsoon shifting from the West to the East Coast a dive site called the Great Basses becomes accessible. It is only safe 4 weeks out of the year and is said to be the best diving in Sri Lanka.

We planned out trip so that we spent one night in the hill country in Belihul Oya, then a night in an ecolodge in Galapita, and finally two nights in Tissamaharama where we went on a safari in Yala National Park and then finally a day of diving at the Great Basses.

We hopped in the car and hit the “main” roads. Luckily the traffic was light and it only took us 4 1/2 hours to reach our first hotel in the hill country.

Beautiful views the whole way up.

We stayed at the River Garden Resort. There was definitely a river and garden, but we never found the “resort.” The staff where friendly enough but rooms we expensive for what they were, and the area so damp that the sheets were always wet. By morning my hat was soaked through!
After a tropical downpour we decided to go for a hike. Armed with a hand written map we set off to find a nearby waterfall.

The waterfall. After all that effort we thought it would be bigger.

Nothing better than a cool mountain river.

The next day we hit the road again and headed out of the mountains.
The roads were great until we hit a split in the road when things got a bit bumpy and the road lost all but one lane.

On the A-4 we came across the Diyaluma Falls.

We arrived for a night at the Galapita ecolodge. There is no electricity and they serve only vegetarian food. Other then them not being ready for us we had a great and relaxing stay.
