The entire area surrounding the lake is very beautiful. The lake is not very big but the mountains behind the lake and the green park around the lake add to the beauty. There are bicycle available on rent. There is an entry ticket also. The price is not very nominal. The scenery lets you forget that you are in a... More

Pay the entrance fee into the newly built renovated area, it goes round the corner so is longer than it initially appears, the price is maybe a little too high, but it is supporting a good cause for the rejuvenation of the area. Went for a walk, then had a drink, and then sat and read my book on the... More

It is simply unbelievable to reckon this lake as a man made lake. At the heart of the city; where you can spend your time taking a long walk, jet ski (water scooters) or hop onto the boat for a ride of the entire lake. The park has a parking as well as an entrance fee which is very minimal.... More

Awesome that the community is doing so much to improve this area, but I feel it still has some way to go.

Just 5 min on the Badulla road passing the race course you will come to the point where the lake is active at its best. Row boats, Jet skies, Boating, Swan boats, and even a jogging path is developed for the publics. The domestic air taxi lands and takes off at the lake, and you could drive around the lake... More

A lovely serene lake in the heart of Nuwara Eliya. You can walk around it, sit besides it or take a boat ride. It's so beautiful, one can spend a whole day sitting there.

We spent a day exploring Nuwara Eliya on foot, and followed directions to a 'lake just up the road'. It's a bit of a hike in the heat, and we didn't really think much of it: a small lake, just behind some allotments, with lots of litter and a couple of cows sauntering down the footpath. We realised retrospectively that... More
