How to arrive Peacock Hill

Great hiking experience. Recommended for beginners. There’s a trail for the peak of the mountain and you can walk easily to the mountain. First, you have to come to the Gampola bus stand. Then you have to catch the Doragala Bus from the Gampola Bus Stand.

There’s a private bus also from Gampola Bus Stand.

If you missed these buses you have to come to “Paradeka” by “Welimada Bus”. Then you can get a three wheel taxi but it’s very expensive. There’s a van service also. My advice is to catch the van service or walk to the Doragala Tea Factory. You can see beautiful water streams, Tea Estates on your way. It’s about 5km – 6km from Paradeka to Doragala Tea Factory.

  • New Doragala Tea Factory
  • On the way to peacock hill

After reaching the factory, you can see a small tar road to the upper side. Go through it. Or you can ask what is the way to the Monaragala / Peacock Hill / Tower from there. Villagers are very kind and they will show the way. When you are walking on the tar road you can see three telecommunication towers on the top of the mountain and that’s your destination. When you are walking for about 1.5km you will reach Pinus forest.

There’s a small nature trail to the forest. Tar road continues downward but you have to get into the forest via the nature trail. Go through it till it’s ending. You will reach the towers. Turn right from the towers and there’s another way to the peak. Go through it. You will reach the peak. The upper view is so beautiful and amazing. You can see the Kothmale Reservoir from the top.

When you come back via Kadadora, you can go to Mahaweli Maha Seya (a Buddhist stupa), Kothmale Reservoir and it’s dam. It’s a very beautiful place.

Great experience for your day today busy life. Come here, enjoy the environment. Feel the natural beauty. Don’t ruin it. Don’t throw garbage. Don’t disturb the balance of nature.
