My journey here in Srilanka is coming to an end (hopefully and finally :-p ), and since a few more months are left I have decided to explore the country a bit. So far I have visited some very cool places,made good friends and had exciting experiences. 

So as planned I have visited the Srilanka Air Force Museum in Rathmalana, maintained by Srilanka Air Force which holds a collection of almost fifty historic aircraft's related to aviation in Srilanka and an arsenal exhibition.

I would like to thank my colleagues for this great invitation.

From my recent trip to Nuwara Eliya: The visit  to Horton Plains, the largest remaining tract of "Cloud Forest" in Srilanka was the most coolest experience I ever had.The weather changed rapidly and in a matter of minutes I found myself standing in the mist and fog. WOW!!!!!!!!!!

This shot was taken a few Km's from the mountain and as you can see at that time also, its being covered with clouds.

Horton Plains is, another great place to visit in Srilanka. It would be simply an amazing phenomena you would experience.

Tea Gardens, Nuwara Eliya, Srilanka.

A few days back me and my friends took a trip to the coldest and the highest place in Srilanka. The town of Nuwara Eliya, famous for its tea and botanical gardens with vastly stretched mountains, water falls, rivers, lakes and other vegetation fields. It's a place interested in history as the influence of British can very much be seen and is famously nick named as "Little England" of Srilanka as it basically carries the same climate in some way.

December and January are the coldest time in Nuwara Eliya, for me and my friends apart from the beauty of Nuwara Eliya the round trip journey through the freezing cold night was a mere thrill. At times we would meet chunks of mountain slides along the path and when we look outside we could see the lights of the houses in a much lower level and realise our height, and shout out the worst thing that could happen. On our way we also stopped when the wind starts to blow and remove our shirts to facing the wind just to feel the pure coldness. 

We had a great time travelling and exploring the town and I suggest for those who haven't,if your looking for something different and exciting a trip to Nuwara Eliya is definitely one you should try.

Nuwara Eliya is truly natures unimaginable beauty.
