Kikiliyamana | Sixth Tallest Mountain in Sri Lanka

Kikiliyamana or Kikilimana (Sinhala: කිකිලියමාන කන්ද), is the sixth tallest mountain in Sri Lanka. Situated to the northwest end of the Nuwara Eliya town near Shanthipura Colony, the mountain rises to an altitude of 2,240 meters (7,349 ft.) above mean sea level (Vithanage, 1988).

Extending in an area of 4,858.6 ha, the Kikiliyamana Mountain is part of the Central Highlands (Pawuluwage et al., 2019). It is the second-highest place in the Nuwara Eliya urban area and several television service providers such as Derana, Hiru and Swarnawahini have established their TV base stations on the summit of it.
