Pidurutalagala Mountain (8281 ft)

Pidurutalagala is the Sri Lanka’s highest peak, also known as Mount Pedro, rises 2524m (8281ft) above sea level, immediately behind the Nuwara Eliya town.  Pidurutalagala Mountain Range is part of the central high lands of Sri Lanka witch is World Heritage Site of Sri Lanka.  Unfortunately, the path to the summit, which is the site of Sri lanka’s main television transmitter and Radar system of Sri lanka Air Force and Civil Aviation Authority, is closed to visitors for security reasons. For a view of the summit and a superb panorama of the surrounding hills and plantations, you can walk to the top of the picturesquely named single Tree Mountain, south of town off the Badulla road, in about 90 minutes.
