Passing Ginigathena in Hatton Road

This is not part of South American Amazon forest! It is our own Sri Lanka, passing Ginigathena on the Hatton Road. A few decades ago this area was barren with only Mana grass and shrub jungle. Thanks to a re-forestation program which has changed this into a beautiful forest reserve enriching the flora and fauna! I was amazed to see the change during my visit to upcountry in connection with my book on Ceylon Tea (BLACK GOLD MADE IN CEYLON - Published by Amazon Kindle Edition)

Duke's Nose Mountain

This mountain is called the Duke's Nose overlooking the city of Hatton. Got its name as someone had remarked it looked like the nose of Duke of Edinburgh! Also, there is a tragic love-story behind it, when a couple (Cader & Sheela) committed suicide here in the 1950s, also called Cader Hill!
