    What to Expect

    The Bible Rock of Sri Lanka, locally named “Bathelegala” is a somber square sentinel that can be seen in the distant mountainous horizon, looming over other rocks and mountains, on the way up or down the Kadugannawa Pass along the Kandy Road. The rock stands at 2,618 feet above sea level and is considered a landmark that has inspired painters, poets and photographers from times age-old. It was given its name during the time when Ceylon was under British Imperialism, the ‘Bible’ aspect derives from the flat-topped surface of the rock, giving it the resemblance of a lectern.

    The 360-degree view from atop the rock is a photographer’s dream. The spectacular view of Asupini Ella, Kadugannawa Pass & Ura Kande, and the surrounding mountains and forests are simply put, breathtaking. On top of being one of the most scenic mountain tops, the biodiversity around Bible Rock ensures that hikers and bird lovers especially get to spot bird species such as the Black Eagle and the Shaheen Falcon; a subspecies of the Peregrine Falcon that is considered the fastest animal in the World.
