Triple-Headed Mountain

A26 Highway by Son of the Morning Light on 500px.com

Thunhis Gala (literally, the Three-Headed Rock), part of the Knuckles Mountain Range, towers over the A26 Highway that drops 600m down the eastern face of the Central Highlands, from Digana to the flatlands around Mahiyanganaya. The highway, which includes the hair-raising Dhaha Ata Wanguwa (Eighteen Bends), is one of the best driving roads in Sri Lanka. Leave Digana as early as you dare and beat the traffic. Shot on assignment for Explore Sri Lanka magazine, as part of my road trip piece, The Temple of War, which appeared in the April 2016 issue.
