“Only if you are nature lover visit this place. If not this will be very boring place to you. Before this place was agricultural land. Sometimes you can see animal species which are specific to Sri Lanka. There is an observation place in moon plains. You can see mountain range in 360°view. And there is a border of central province of Sri Lanka and Uva province. You can capture group photos here with 360 ° view. It is very awesome. ”
