Dethanagala is a two peaked mountain ( higher peak of 1858m and shorter one of 1837m) located at the boundary of Samanala range and Horton plains. It is named such because it is like a breast of a woman as seen from far, having the best angle of view from the town of Balangoda. The known hiking route to go to the peak is in the south side of the mountain, starting from the Dethanagala village.
We; 43 members of the Hiking club of University of Moratuwa gathered at the front gate at about 3:30 a.m and took the bus in we hired to the town of Balangoda, where we had the breakfast and collected the lunch packets. Then we took the route to Dethanagala village via Pinnawala and Marathanna. The bus ride was kind of scary as the road was so narrow, just having the width of about the width of a regular van. But the bus driver managed to take us to the Dethangala village safely.
