Hunnasgiriya, Sri Lanka.

The highest point on the Kandy - Mahiyangana highway, the town of Hunnasgiriya.
Looking down into the Mahiyangana valley.
The road from Kandy starts ascending from Theldeniya till it reaches its summit at Hunnasgiriya town. It is cold, windy and the mist covers the road very often. Then the descent starts and goes past Madugoda on its way to Hasalaka and Mahiyangana.

Ascent to Hunnasgiriya from Theldeniya

Hunnasgiriya to Madugoda and beyond before the 18 hairpin bends.
