The Devil's staircase

When passing Balangoda, Ratnapura on the Colombo-Badulla Road, turn left at Kalupana Junction and continue on your way to visit the famous Bambarakanda Falls. The road ends at Horton Reserve. Devil’s Staircase, known as the Devil’s Staircase, was formerly planted by English planters. Looking at it from a distance, the road with Valamitivangu looks like a staircase and seems to have got its name. These are the roads where the stone slabs have been removed and the sharpening of it

Time to climb: frequent rains, but between December and April of the year it would be worth the trip.
