Kirigalpoththa is Sri Lanka’s second highest mountain. I learnt that from Sri Lankan hiking blog with the same name that I introduced a while back. Along with giving boots on the trail accounts of hiking in Sri Lanka Kirigalpoththa the blogger tends to put up photos of some stunning places in Sri Lanka that awe less fortunate desk bound serfs Cerno. Understandably after a hard day on the trail he can’t be expected to mark all these places on Google Earth.
So I thought I’ll try my hand at it since I’ve done this sort of thing before. To start with here’s a screen grab of Kirigalpoththa mountain from Google Earth.
It doesn’t have a lot of high resolution detail. However, the Google Earth location file (.kmz) I found also includes a details of the trail to climb Kirigalpoththa mountain. The last update date on http://www.lakdasun.com (where I got the file) is listed as February 2, 2009 so I’m not sure how current those details are. I’ll leave it to Kirigalpoththa to clarify.
Have a good weekend. May you have the fortune to go to places like these and come back safe and happy to tell use about it.
