Along this trail you could gain access to National Namal Uyana, the natural park of Sri Lanka that literally saw the light of day through the "Revolution on the Mora Tree and glorified by the biggest rose quartz deposit in South East Asia. The Namal Park is located in a climatic zone displaying the features of both the dry zone weather during certain period of time and wet zone weather in the other months of the year. Anybody visiting this site during any month of the year would feel comfortable and would be attracted to its immense beauty. It is unbelievable wonderful creation of Mother Nature exists in this land."

As such the Na tree had been considered sacred throughout Buddhist history, and anyone entering the Namal Uyana would realise how this concept is justified, event today. The captivating fragrance emanating from the Na forest would soothe even a person with a stone heart"
...” And just this week, the U S Department of State warned of "the continued lack of adequate security forces and rule of law on the ground in Sittwe" the capital of the western state of Rakhine, following reports of Buddhist mobs attacking foreign aid groups in the region
