Aussie adventurer scales the narrow spiral staircase of an ancient buddhist temple
DON’T LOOK DOWN! This is the moment a travel vlogger got himself into a tight squeeze as he ascended the spiral stair case of the ancient Ambuluwawa Tower in Sri Lanka.
Standing on the peak of an isolated mountain at at a staggering 3567ft above sea level the elegant Ambuluwawa Tower is a mind blowing spectacle situated in Gampola, Sri Lanka.
The perilous journey to the top of the structure requires a trek up a narrow spiral staircase barely big enough for one person.
The climb is no easy task but it was small potatoes for Australian adventurer Brandon Cody Bruce who filmed his climb on a selfie stick showcasing the precarious ascent as well as some spectacular views of the Sri Lankan countryside.Image by: Brandon Bruce Image by: Brandon Bruce Image by: Brandon Bruce Image by: Brandon Bruce
Brandon, a 24-year old from Brisbane Australia who gave up the life of a fisherman for a life of round the world travel said:
“I started travelling solo at the age of 19 when I worked on superyachts around the world for 2 years, then at the start of 2019 I began full time travelling. Photography and videography have been a passion of mine for years now as well.”
“I was competing in a 10-day tuktuk tournament throughout Sri Lanka and this Temple climb was one of the challenges to complete to earn points.”
“The video shows me walking up the skinny staircase temple overlooking the beautiful scenery of Kandy and the mountains surrounding”
“It was very cloudy during this day so visibility wasn’t the best. If I could do it again I would love to go up during a clear day so I can see everything.”Video by: Brandon Bruce
