  • Great place in the heart of Nuwara Eliya to watch and stay. It has a great view, pedal boats, speed boats, great river banks with great lawn, food, flowers, cable sliding, horses to ride etc... Also the place has a nice car park, the lawn never gets packed and pretty well maintained.

  • Excellent location for water sports activities in Nuwara Eliya. definitely do a super hi speed jet boat ride. Specially kids love to play around the area and the activities. There are good food outlets.

  • Beautiful place. One of most attractive place in the Nuwara eliya town. parking available. Boat safaries available. You have to get a ticket for car park.

  • Ridiculous price for foreigners. As most of places in Sri Lanka, they do overcharge tourists! This is only a lake to stroll around and I’m pretty sure that back home I saw many places like this or even better for free. The condition is free to everyone (independent of race, gender, age, religion and mainly if you are a foreigner). It’s kind of exploration over foreigners. Very sad ! Do not support this activity! You can see from outside!
