Kirigalpotta is the 2nd tallest mountain in Sri Lanka at 2,388 m (7,835 ft) above mean sea level, and is also the highest mountain in the country whose summit is accessible to the general public (the highest point, Pidurutalagala, is occupied by a military base and off-limits to the public). The peak is situated near the city of Nuwara Eliya, within the Nuwara Eliya District. Only one 7 km (4 mi) hiking trail provides access to the mountain's summit via the Horton Plains National Park, although the trail is not very popular.

  • Amazing experience with the journey and Incredible scenery at the peak! 2nd highest mountain in Sri Lanka. 🇱🇰 ( Up and down 5×2 walk and 2×2 hike, Tot 14km) Make sure you reach the peak before 3pm. 😉
  • A breathtaking elevation just around 5KM walking trail from Horton Plains National Park. The sceneries are just beyond words, and the final view is mesmerizing! You just have to walk on to the summit yourself to feel it for real that what it actually is...
