Re: Central Sri Lanka Literate Jan 5, 2018 Fix at least Pinavella to Pinnavela. In English too .
Re: Центральная Шри-Ланка admin 5 Январь, 2018 r>Thanks for noticing. As it happens, the first time you remember it, you pronounce it that way. It was the same with Polonnaruwa-Pollonnaruwa. It took me a long time to relearn it…
Re: Центральная Шри-Ланка Амна 10 Октябрь, 2018 Ассаламу Алейкум.r>хотела бы спрасить. могу ли я найти в шриланке халал едуr>спасибо.r>And I’m sorry for the mistakes.
Re: Центральная Шри-Ланка admin 10 Октябрь, 2018 r>Hello! Yes, you can, but this cuisine is not very widespread. Look for Muslim hotels, they have such restaurants.
Re: Central Sri Lanka Paul112244466 11 November, 2018 Here you write “you can still get from Matara to Bandarawella” and what bus? What is the number? How does it go? If you write a guide, write all the information, or limit yourself to exactly what you know.
Re: Central Sri Lanka helka 19 Nov, 2018 Good afternoon, can you tell me if there are lockers in Polonnaruwa or where you can leave your suitcases if you arrive there in the morning, walk around the Ancient City and then leave by bus to Kandy . .
Re: Центральная Шри-Ланка admin 19 Ноябрь, 2018 r>Не уверен, что камеры ранения там есть. Вернее, скорее уверен что их нет, т.к. там вход и контроль билетов прямо на улице, помещения для хранения нет. Может что-то есть в офисе по продаже билетов, но вряд ли ланкийцы до такого бы додумались. Если реально искать место, где оставить вещи, то лучше всего на ж/д станции, так должны быть камеры хранения, как и на всех других станциях. Ну на крайний случай можно попробовать договариваться за символическую сумму с персоналом кассы по продаже билетов или зайти в первый попавшийся отель и на ресепшене договориться. Последний вариант рабочий и проверенный 100%.r>If I were you, I would think about whether you could do it without an overnight stay. I understand if it is with a tour or in a car with a driver. But to arrive in a new unfamiliar city, find a place to leave your luggage, find the ticket office, get to the entrance, to move over a huge area. In addition, you need something to move around the city, the distance is great. You’ll have to find a tuk-tuk for the day. IMHO, knowing how hard it is to travel in hot countries, I would arrive in the evening, get some sleep, and in the morning early the next day start looking around the park. .
Re: Центральная Шри-Ланка helka 2 Декабрь, 2018 Спасибо большое за ответ. Дело в том что мы приедем и так с утра, так как будем ночевать в Дамбулле, и планировали снять тук-тук на целый день.r>As for things, we’ve already booked a cheap gest house, that’s where we’ll leave them. )) And overnight hopefully will be in Kandy, because if you come to Polonnaruwa at 10 am until about 16 am I think will be enough time to look at the most important, especially on a tuk tuk.
Re: Центральная Шри-Ланка admin 2 Декабрь, 2018 r>Well, in principle, yes, in 6 hours you can take a tuk tuk. Determine for yourself the most important things to see. I hope you read our guide to Polonnaruwa. .

Geography and features
The waterfall is located in the suburb of Nuwara Eliya at an elevation of 945 m. It has two separate arms. The left arm of the Ramboda Falls in Sri Lanka is formed by the Puna Oya River.

The right branch is formed by the Pandalu Oya River, another tributary of the Kotmale Oya River, which flows through cultivated farmland. At the point of fall, the two arms merge into a common stream and form a swimming pool.
For most of the year, the Pandalu Oya River brings the bulk of the water to the Ramboda Falls in Sri Lanka. During droughts, its level decreases significantly. In contrast, the level of the left branch of the Ramboda in Sri Lanka, although small, remains unchanged.
