Time in Sri Lanka:     srilanka_map


Pidurutalagala, or Mount Pedro in English, is an ultra-prominent peak, and the tallest mountain in Sri Lanka, at 2,524 meters (8,281 feet). Mount Pedro is located very close to the city of Nuwara Eliya, and is easily visible from most areas of the Central Province.

Its summit is home to the central communications array of the Government of Sri Lanka and armed forces and serves as an important point in the country's radar system. There is an easy motorable road up to the peak and should obtain permission from the Sri Lanka Army check point at the entrance to the Mountain. When you reach to the top, the view is magnificent and you can see the surrounding mountains, Nuwara Eliya town and tea gardens.

Watch out for Leopard crossing and fabulous "Maharath Mal".
