  • The beautiful view is near the lake, we walk along the Lake Road and not go into the park, because it is not worth paying for it.

  • From a distance the Lake looks nice. It is one of the favorite places of rest of the townspeople. In the recreation area, the entrance to which foreigners worth 200 rupees, festivals and holidays. Outside of this zone of rest do not recommend-the coast resemble a large garbage dump.

  • Nice place the lake is full of people and it is a very good place to go jet skiing. There is one man u have to safe from he literally wrecks u. MAKE SURE YOU TAKE GLOVES GOSH IT'S FREEZING THERE. suddenly clouds drop and temp goes other 5 degrees
  • Beautiful lake. Does take entry fees of 200Lkr for foreign nationals. Although for boating etc, you need to pay separately. There are wide benches to squat and enjoy the cool breeze. The insides of the park are green and well maintained however on the outside, with hawkers everywhere,it's littered. The other side of the lake seems closed. You can typically spend and 45mins to and hour here. Weekends are very crowded here. However mornings are more quiet.
  • One part of this lake bank is clean because it is maintained by the police and they charge money as a ticket for the maintenance.but the other part of the river is really polluted (there is polythene and plastic everywhere 🤮) But you can have fun on the place where it’s maintained, there is jet sking , boat rides 🚣‍♀️, swan rides etc... anyways a good place to enjoy .but I suggest they have to put public dustbins everywhere because the ones which are there is not sufficient and even that is sponsored by a certain company Thank you 🙃
  • One of the lovely place to be if you visited N'Eliya. Walking around lake in the morning and evening is another experience which you should get. Cool breeze, love & panoramic view...
