It is a nice drive from Galle. On the way up the mountain the road is a bit steep in certain places. There is parking available near the entrance to the Peace Pagoda. The pagoda itself is nice and there are beautiful views from here.

The best time to visit is nearly 6 p.m. to enjoy the beautiful sunset and terrific Galle for view. Japaneese temple in Rumasala Mountain is kind of very special place. You will feel tranquility after few minutes os staying. Even kids became more quiete there ;)

It's a great place for a walk from Unawatuna. Use the signs leading to the Jungle Beach or to the Japanese Peace Pagoda. You will meat tuk tuk drivers on the way telling you this is a bad road and that you will get lost. Just politely wave them off. You might also meat sweet children who will join you, alk with you (supposedly as your guide) and then ask for money to buy books for school (BTW the SL goverment gives text books for free, they only have to buy exercise books to write in them;).
It's a refreshing walk away from overcrowded Unawatuna area :)

The paradise situated few kilometres away from Galle town. Don't forget visit the Buddhist temple on the way to the jungle which has an amazing view of indian ocean.

this wonderful monument stays in the top of a paradise hill. It´s worth going by foot. there is a track in the end of Unawatuna beach! go and find it ! in the way, we find a guy who knew all names of presidents from Brazil! spectacular weird ! the temple has great view and beautiful images of Buddah !
