Your valiant effort (/s) is much appreciated but ultimately not needed because this punch-throwing business is all in your head. Like I said, nobody here wanted or instigated the "what makes a car guy?" argument but you. Nobody here dissed other car models and forum members but you. Nobody here wanted to take the thread OT but you did. You yourself admitted to doing all this and now you want us to believe you had honest noble intentions? Pfffffffffft

Those who know know...just because others kept quiet it does not mean that you are in the clear and I am in the wrong. 

So....if you wish to make valuable contributions towards appreciating a certain car...do so whilst respecting other car owners.

Eh, I was always in the clear. You on the other hand was trying to have a spot of fun out of us, just like you do dissing the Premio in that Premio owners' club (which horribly went wrong and backfired something fierce this time) about the others being quiet... I just hope they enjoyed it just as much as I did! :D 

Anyway, no hard feelings. Back to the studio! discussing KONOS' Lancer!

No...that was not the intent...but if that is what you want to believe sure...go for it. The intent was that if you are to appreciate a vehicle. Do so without dissing owners of other vehicles (my FB posts you quite courteously posted had nothing to do with users...it had to do with the car...and again..it wasn't a troll..it was pure facts).

Hello Guys. It's been a while since I updated my own thread. Need some Road tripping advice from my fellow Autolankans. We are planning to go Belihuloya via Nuwaraeliya- Hortanplains- Ohiya route. I am more specifically concerned about Hortan Plains-Ohiya route. Since my car being lowered and I am a bit paranoid of the thought that the Road condition might not be that good and fitting for the car. We will be taking another 2 lowered BMWs and a Honda civic. So yeah this is going to be an epic journey. Has anyone of you taken your vehicle via this route? Of course I am street-viewing and I was just wondering if you could kindly share your own experience with me.

Regards.

Recently went from Bogahakumbura to Hortan plains via Boralanda and Ohiya. Road from Ohiya to Hortan plains is a bit narrow but there are no pot holes along the way.I went by my CHR and didn't have issues with ground clearance either. I saw a few sedans also on the way traveling without aany issues . The road is a bit scary if you are not used to upcountry roads . There are bends, steep climbs on the way. But beautiful scenary.

Absolutely yes one of my favorite drives as well. I made this trip on my Axela back in 2019. No issues with the road.

But the road towards devils staircase, from the point the road from Ohiya divides is still bad from the beginning I guess. There are few good lodging places on that road, dont think we can make on a sedan.

@K.o.N.o.S even though the roads are good there are few elbow bends closer to the Horton plains with the incline, if the cars are lowered you'll have to take extra care on those not to hit the front end.

Always use this Amazing road whenever im heading Nuwara eliya from Colombo. Experience is unimaginable. Usually leaving early morning from Nugegoda (4.00am) Balangoda via Galanigama Rathnapaura > Haputhale > Boralanda > Ohiya > Worlds end > Nuwara eliya. Planing to take the Devils staircase, but the road seems bit not satisfactory lately (after heavy falls) even for a proper 4WD. And i think i need Proper A/T tires before trying that route. @sathyajithj99 Yours is an AWD right?

@K.o.N.o.S as others mentioned be extra careful on steep bends.

Road tripping I love. Unfortunately the road from Ohiya to Kalupahana (Devil's staircase) has seen some land slides and you will not be even able to take a 4wd down that road, last time I checked only bikes can go where the road has become very narrow.

Horton Plains to Ohiya should not be that bad, you can take your car down that road without any issues.

Why not try the road from Boralanda to Idalgashinna side and come towards Belihul oya from there. As you know Idalgashinna is one of the most beautiful stations out there in the country.

Have never taken this road, seems to have good views too. Just looked up the g map and isn't it bit narrow. not sure if the g maps are old ? You think a sedan can tackle this road ?

I dont think a Sedan can tackle that road. But for certain extent from Kalupahana side road is Asphalt paved (Carpet)

A bus does go on that road, so a sedan should be able to tackle that but best make sure nothing comes from the other side. I dont remember to be exact whether it was the same road I remember taking to come down from horton plains to Haldummulla junction in 2010/11, came in zero visibility (fog) behind a bus and remember overtaking the bus before coming to Haldummulla in a Corolla 110 with 5 people and baggage onboard.

This is a different road machang, not the same devil's stair case road. This according to G maps is half paved and concrete.

You're talking about the Road which heading (Starts near Govijana sewa Office in Haldummulla) towards Needwood Tea factory and then towards the Idalgashinna Railway station right?. Yeah, Road is well paved up to the Tea factory. but beyond that I don't think a car can handle it.

As I said I cant remember well but I think it is this road that I took that time but in dense for so can remember any waypoints. Its coming from me who took 5 people in a car to fishing huts. If you drive slowly you might be able to make it even if the road is bad. But best check with someone from that area.
