From the heart of Colombo, around 172 kilometers away (3 1/2 hours drive) lies the idealistic "The Other Corner". Situated within the cultural triangle, an area rife with paddy fields and natural beauty, of thatched roofs and friendly natives, where wild life abounds and the appeal of the wild will leave you breathless.
The road leading there for the most part is straight and well paved providing a peaceful and enjoyable journey. The panoramic view as the bustle of the big city is left behind and a world of natural beauty and untainted forests, with marsh land dotting the area is breathtaking. The concrete buildings giving way to small huts with thatched roofs and close, friendly communities, is a welcome change for anyone trying to escape the stress of a urban life.
