we were informed that we have to come to the science faculty premises before 7o' clock in the morning on that day as usual for a hike with UEC & It was specially highlighted that we have to be punctual.
I got up early & was energetic in the process of getting ready though I was late to go to the science faculty. It was around 7.30 when I came to the science faculty. Like that It was almost 9.30 & very late when we started our journey, it is a very common thing in UEC events.
Like that we got on to a hired bus at the faculty of science at about 9.30 and started our journey. Using the normal Gampola road It took only 2 hours or so to come to Nuwara eliya . Then we could easily find the Sir Jayathilake mawatha & Its Piduruthalagala end led us to a Sri Lanka army Sinha regiments check point on the foot of the mountain.from there onwards cameras or mobile phones with cameras were not allowed & security personnel collected our national ID cards also.

It was a Wesak poya day so we didn't forget to do some meritorious things also. so we conveyed a Buddha statue to the little temple at the top of the mountain from our university & presented it to a one of the engineers. With them we could go inside the Rupavahini transmission center and they taught some very valuable things about their equipment & technology too.

There were many things to be happy about that journey. Not only that there were many things to be worried about too..There are no ways to re-correct the bad things that man had done to this natures' marvel.. Now Its our duty to stop such bad things which are to be done in the future.
