Thotupola Kanda(also Totapolakanda or Thotupolakanda) is the third highest mountain in Sri Lanka with a height of 2,537m (7,733 ft). The peak is located within the Horton Plains National Park in Nuwara Eliya. The trial to the mountain, which is about 2km long starts a few meters away from the Pattipola entrance of the National Park. The trail to the top is through rough terrain surrounded with shrubs adapted to the cool and windy climate of Horton Plains National Park. On a clear day, a climb to the summit provides a panoramic view of Adam’s peak and the plain below.
In Sinhala Language, Thotupola Kanda has the meaning of ‘Landing site’ which is related to the legend of Rama and Ravana. It is stated that King Ravana used the peak as a landing spot while returning from India.
