“Amazing ancient rose quartz mountain with old monastery. Lovely walk through Naan tree forest (national tree of SL) before ascending up the pre quartz mountain with Buddha Statue half way. Breathaking views across the land. Not very challenging, suitable for kids ad older people, bring water to drink!”
