Traveling Amazing Kelabokka Upper Division 360 View Point In Sri Lanka
In general, the people of our country used to travel abroad very little. But foreigners are the ones who hear about the beauty of our country and find beautiful places and visit those places. By now, people who have something wrong in our country are used to traveling to foreign countries. No matter where you travel, travel is a very lucky thing. If you can forget your problems for a few days after getting rid of the busy monotonous life, you will feel great relief. But how many of those who seek beauty in foreign countries have visited the beautiful places of our country. When we see foreign tourists visiting places like mountains and waterfalls that our countrymen don’t even know about, we really wonder if our country is not beautiful for locals.
Like Switzerland and Denmark, New Zealand is said to be beautiful. So, if you want to see the beauty of such a country, you have to go there. But today we are going to talk about an even more beautiful place in Sri Lanka. Last week we went to Knuckles mountains Alakolawatta, so today we are ready to go for another event in Dumbara forest. So, although the details were given, they did not say what the place was gone.
Today we are going to another viewpoint that can be seen from a 360-degree angle, which is located on a beautiful mountain top in Kelabokka Estate. Kelabokka Estate is located between Kabargala and Madolkele, so you can reach this estate from both Kandy and Matale side. Therefore, we chose the Matale Kabaragala route from these two routes and there is a special reason for that, it is the route from Matale to Kelabokka where you can see the most beautiful.
We always say that if we are going on a trip, we should start the journey early in the morning. Therefore, we started our journey in the morning, so we were able to reach Matale around 7 am. After passing the city of Matale, about one and a half kilometers on the Kandy road, you will meet the Kandy road on the hill running to the left. On that road, you can reach Kalebokka via Kabaragala in the city of Kanda. The beauty of the environment increased more and more as we passed the mountain of Kandy and went up the benda road. Looking for a good place to have breakfast on the side of the road, Kabargala came across a place where you can see the beauty of the surrounding area. So we stopped the vehicle without thinking about it and took our breakfast while enjoying the surrounding beauty.
We ate quickly and started our journey because we wanted to reach our destination before noon. Because if it is daytime, the fog clouds come and cover the entire environment, because you will not be able to see the beautiful views. When we pass the Kelabokka factory and continue for another 500 meters, we find an estate road leading up the mountain to the south. You can reach Kelabokka view Point by travelling about 3 to 4 km on that road. We also traveled up the mountain on the plantation road little by little.
The road of the estate is very dilapidated. While we were going forward, we met a van that came from Kelabokka. The van that came up the road with great difficulty was removed from the road and allowed us to go because they could not go up this road anymore. It is really difficult for vehicles like cars and vans to go because of the bad roads, so if you are coming to Kelabokka, you can make your trip easier if you come with a suitable vehicle.
After going up about 2 km on the estate road, you have to walk between two rows of estate houses on the estate. Despite the beauty of the environment, the people who live in estate houses spend a difficult life. That became clear to us when we saw the living pattern of the plantations living on the roadside.
After passing the plantation houses, you will find an area where tea cultivation has been abandoned. When you travel to the top of it, you can reach the upper part of Kelabokka Estate or Upper Division in the estate language. The beautiful scenery, where the vehicle travels to the top of the mountain pass in the middle of a Pathan land, is an amazing and charming sight. The summer cottages built on both sides of the half-built temples on the top of the mountain added a wonderful beauty.
I picked up the camera to take photos but waited for a while without taking photos because it was so beautiful. I think it would be fair to say that we were really overwhelmed with that beauty. Leaning against the wooden fence, I looked up at the Knuckles mountain range ahead. The highest peak in the Knuckles Range is Gombania Peak. Here you can see the peaks of the Knuckles mountains and the Kirigalpotta mountain range looking majestically in front of us.
Also, since we came early in the morning, another charming sight was the way the clouds came from the Wind blowing path towards Matale in the Rivaston mountain range. Also, you can see the top of Karagahathenna or Opalgala mountain from the Matale side, the top of Makulusa mountain and Atipola, and even the top of Hunasgiriya mountain. Also, it is said that you can see even the Battle Gala mountain range of Kandy here. You can see it from a 360-degree angle, here you cseecle the Hulu River flowing between the Dumbara mountain range and the Kelabokka mountain range.
Kelabokka estate is a large estate of 1370 acres. It is said that 1350 plantation families live here. Kelabokka Estate belongs to the State Plantation Corporation. One of the largest tea plantations in this country is Kelabokka Estate, so if you visit one day, don’t forget to drink some delicious tea.
