is a great place for a long hike. Hurihela mountain is a very different mountain. When we are told that it is a mountain, we are reminded of the idea of climbing from the foot of a mountain to the top of the hill. But this mountain is such a difficult one. You can go to the bottom of the mountain in a vehicle without any difficulty. After that we have to walk along the mountain. It was a very different experience.
Even the villagers do not know about this mountain. It usually took us about 2 hours to walk from one end of the mountain to the other. The journey was not that difficult. We were able to clearly see the great places like the Badulla district. Frequent strong winds. The environment is very cool. If you go on a sunny day, you can see a lot of beautiful scenery and clearly see the Badulla Nuwara Eliya main road.
The nearest town is Hali Ela. Come to Hali Ela and walk for about 10 minutes before Welimada Nuwara Eliya. You will find the main road leading to Neluwa Kirinda Road. As you walk along Kirinda Neluwa you can see Hurihelakanda very well and as you continue you will come across a three-lane road. After about 2 km on the Kirinda road you will come across the by road leading to Hurihela mountain. It will not be difficult to find. If it is difficult to find the road, ask the villagers. Motorcycles are the best vehicle for this journey.
