There was a day when we got tired of walking around Kandy and its sights, and went to look for places where the other tourists don’t visit. We raced through fields and villages until a rock appeared on the horizon. For a while we were looking for a way to the top, but found only a passage through a back garden via Aranayake village, with the permission of the locals that lived there, and the view to the rock opened out before us. This is the view the local residents enjoy from their back yards.
