Very nice place. Clean well maintained lake. Plenty of boats did not have to wait for turn. Life jackets available and mandatory. View of surrounding from boat is awesome. And nice experience having fun and everything if u gone with group of friends that is nice! hope you enjoy .Must visit.
Absolutely scenic and breathtaking. We arrived on the 23rd of Dec around 5 pm in the evening. The lake offers one of the best views in Sri Lanka. A 3 hour drive from Galle led us to Nuwara Eliya. Being a high tourist and festive season, the place was buzzing. The young were enjoying boating, in fact the lake was full of speed boats for the one seeking adrenaline, besides tourist of all age group. Its recommended you book accommodation well in advance. The park around the lake was splendid specially during the early morning walks. Lots of stalls for food, music and a bonfire to warm up
