The Department of Postal Services installed a postbox on the top of Pidurutalagala (Mount Pedro) which is the tallest mountain in Sri Lanka, a statement said yesterday.

It has been done for the benefit of tourists hiking the mountain to send postcards as souvenirs to their relatives and loved ones.

According to the statement, there is an outlet selling postcards and stamps for both local and foreign tourists. A postman from the Nuwara-Eliya main post office will be dispatched on a daily basis to collect postal items from this postbox.

Minister Abdul Haleem took the initiative in this regard.

    At this internet age, who bothers to post letters or cards from a mountain top !

    Don't people in this country do anything sensible. Tourists usually go back to their hotels, have a cup of tea and then write their postcards. That poor 'nominee' will have to climb piduruthalagala daily to collect the cards.. I guess in a couple of weeks he will only go once a week, then once a month and then it will be an annual pilgrimage. Stop this nonsense and stop wasting the countrys resources.

    They are still in Stone age doing mad things and wasting Public money.

    It proves, drunkard Minister Haleem has lost his sense due to cell-damage.
