Night at Nilaveli Beach
Sun rise on Nilaveli Beach
We've started our journey at 20:00 by train. It was a very pleasant traveling time. Eventhough we were plaining to get of at Trincomalee railway station, we did that at Chinabay reilway station at about 05:00. Then, one of my friends, who is living in Trincomalee came to meet us. First we went to their home and had a quick morning tea. Our plan was to get into the cruise ship which is going to mutur and come back again. But we were not able to get into the ship, because we were late.
The Koneswaram Kovil
Then, we went to the Koneswaram Kovil. You have to walk nearly 500m to reach the top of the mountain where this kovil is situated. On the way back, we also went to the Koneswaram temple. We've walked to the Trincomalee bus station and took a bus to Nilaweli beach. It was about 1 hour journey. Then, we have to walked 500m (dusty and rough road at that time) to reach the Nilaveli beach.
After we had our lunch (which is neither cheap nor taste) which we bought from a shop near the road, we went to 'Pigen Island' by boat. It is about 1km away from the Nilaveli beach.
Beach - Pigen Island
We got a boat back to Nilaveli beach at about 16:30 and then, again had a good swim.
Then, we've placed our tent at the Nilaveli beach and had our dinner (which is really bad). We try to set up a fire, but we failed due to the very disturbing strong wind blows which from sea to land side. At about 18:30, we went to sleep. During the night time, One of our friends had some pain in his leg. But don't know the exat reason till now. :-) At about 06:30, we got up. And it was a so great view. Sun rises from the horizon line at far end by the sea. I can't describe the beauty of the seanary.Then, we slept in the beach for about one hour. It was a very relaxing time. Then we play (made some sand castles, etc.) and again swim till 11:30. After all we pack the luggage by our selves and came back to Trincomalee by bus. After having our lunch, we took a bus at about 14:00 and came to colombo at about 22:30. The End
