Pilgrims from Jaffna, Kilinochchi, Vavuniya, Mullaithivu, and Trincomalee set off this morning from Ukandai on their journey on foot through the jungle to Katahragama to attend the Esala festival on August 07, 2013.

They will make a long trek through Kumana and Yala national parks and reach Kataragama on the previous day of the ceremony.
