Meemure


mapCrew : 10

Duration : Two days

Transport : Bus, Public transport service (Van)

Meemure is a Valley in knuckles mountain range. One should travel around 42 Kms in KMP (Kandy-Mahiyanganaya-Padiyathalawa) highway from Kandy to Hunnasgiriya and then again travel about 31 kms in Hunnasgiriya-Meemure road. There is a transport service from Hunnasgiriya to Meemure which charges a reasonable price in the scheduled time table, but will charge more if you want to arrange a van at your convenience. We used public bus service to reach Hunnasgiriya and then traveled to Meemure by a van. It will take more time to go Meemure from Hunnasgiriya than Kandy to Hunnasgiriya, because of the poor road condition. If you are expecting to travel by a private vehicle, A van or a 4 wheel vehicle is recommended.

Since Meemure is surrounded by mountains, there was no mobile network coverage (hope still the same). Meemure post office has a fixed line telephone connection and as i heard that is the only telephone line existed. If you plan to stay more than a day it is better to buy everything you need before passing Hunnasgiriya, because it will be very difficult to find anything other than the essentials inside the village. There are many sites for camping and came to know that there are few cottages which can be rented. We located our tent near the stream which is few kilometers away from the village. We carried a kerosine oil cooker with us and prepared food ourselves except one meal. The villagers are very friendly and one prepared a meal for us for a very reasonable price and it was tasty (Y) .

If you are planning to travel meemure in early september, you will be able to climb “Lake gala”, which is a steep rock near Meemure. Villagers said that it will be slippery in other times of the year. Meemure is a place where you can find the beauty of nature still unharmed by humans and was the main location of the movie “Sooriya arana”. The time spent there without any interactions (No calls, no texting, no Internet so no Social Networking) with the outer world is one of the best relaxation i’ve ever had.
