Sri Pada from the Southern Coast
In Early November two grade 11 students and I went down to Hambantota and Yala to plan out our upcoming Week Without Walls trip. During our visit there was a lull in the heavy rains of the North East Monsoon. Driving by the saltpans of Hambantota we came across this amazing view of Sri Pada. It is roughly 100 kilometers away from where the picture was taken. In fact, the entire range of the Central Highlands, as well as the hills around Sinharaja, were visible. But it was Sri Pada’s conical profile that caught my attention.
