Rumassala Hill Galle Travel Guide

The top of Rumassalla hill offers one of the most scenic views of the island – green sloped hills totter down to the golden beach visible for miles, as the Indian ocean unfurls beyond.

To add to its rapture, is a mythological story entwined in the epic ‘Ramayana’, where it is believed that Hanuman the Indian Monkey God dropped a piece of the Himalayan mountains here resulting in unique plant life visible to date. A Buddhist temple also sits atop this hill.
