    The highlight of the show is definitely the fire walking show, where the artists walk through a specially prepared fire pit, roughly 8 feet by 3 feet covered with red-hot charcoal, completely barefoot and emerges unharmed at the other end! Kandy cultural show leaflet describes the fire walking as having its roots in the Valmiki epic of \"Ramayana\", where the king of Sri Lanka Ravana abducts \"Sita\" the wife of Indian prince Rama and after regaining her in an epic battle with Ravana, she is made to prove her chastity by walking through fire barefoot, though the current devotees who perform fire walking in Sri Lanka seek the divine blessings of the Lord Karthekeyan & goddess Pathini.

    In dry spells, the flow is languid The fall is said to derive its name from the tragic tale of a prince, who while hunting in the jungle, lost his way. He was rescued by a beautiful damsel, and the two became inseparable lovers. But the match was not to the liking of the prince’s subjects, so the two decided to immortalise their love by leaping from the top of the fall to their death.

    Superstitious villagers avoid the fall at night. The fall is situated in Havaeliya, 2 km from Nuwara Eliya, Nuwara Eliya District. Many hotels and guest-houses can be found in Nuwara Eliya.

    The waterfall lies about 3 km from the Nuwara Eliya town. Once you go through the winding roads up to the lane which leads to the waterfall, you can either take a 3 wheeler which will take you halfway to the falls and from there its a fairly even gravel path to the falls. The distance is approx 250 meters. Else you could walk from the road. Its about 400 meters uphill walk along a narrow tar road and you can to take a shortcut through a tea estate. This is a fairly steep climb of about 400 meters but little more adventurous.

    A Look into Madu River

    The Mangroves and their Ecology – Facts

    The Madu River area surrounding the river are all swampy marshlands covered in mangrove forests.

    The forest covers over 61 hectares, that is over 150 acres. 14 of the 24 species of mangroves are found in this area.

    It is interesting to note that mangroves play a huge part in preventing erosion.

    The value of the mangroves was understood in December 2004, during the devastating tsunami, when forest acted as a natural barrier protecting the region.

    The large growths of mangrove trees have caused a chain of ecological gain. The soil protected by the mangrove trees is very fertile. This has caused a rich growth of other wetland plants.

    Over 300 species, 19 of which are endemic, have been discovered so far.

    The region continues to be a treasure trove to biologists and ecologists with many undiscovered species in the unreachable depths of the mangrove forests.

    The plantlife in turn have supported a large number of wildlife that depends on them.

    The largest animal in the region is the wild boar. There are other smaller animals such as monkeys, a variety of squirrels, etc.

    When it comes to birds, cormorants and kingfishers are a common sight. For avid bird watchers, the mangrove forests are a dream coming true. There are over 111 bird species identified to inhabit the region.

    There are 31 types of reptiles, namely snakes, lizards and crocodiles.

    There are also over 50 kinds of butterflies and 25 kinds of molluscs found in the Madu River zone.

    The cycle of ecology continues with relatively undisturbed in this region. The region is protected as a Ramsar Wetland Site since 2003. Here is the excerpt from the official Ramsar site that describes the Madu River zone

    A mangrove lagoon joined to the sea by a narrow canal and containing 15 islands of varying size, some of which are inhabited. It is formed of two shallow waterbodies, Maduganga and smaller Randombe Lake, connected by two narrow channels. On the islands and shores relatively undisturbed mangrove vegetation contains a rich biodiversity qualifying the wetland for 7 Criteria of International Importance. Many globally/nationally endangered, endemic and rare species - e.g. Shorea affinis, an endemic and endangered plant, Mugger (Crocodylus palustris) vulnerable (IUCN Red Book) and CITES-listed Purple-faced Leaf Monkey (Trachypithecus vetulus), endangered, Estuarine Crocodile (Crocodylus porosus), Flapshell Turtle (Lissemys punctata), Indian Python (Python molurus) find shelter here. The lagoon provides the breeding, spawning and fattening ground for many fish species and supports 1.2 % of the Little Green Heron biogeographical population. The cultural heritage is very prominent, with numerous ancient temples in the area and on the islands. Maduganga helps in flood control by storing water during monsoon rains and retains nutrient run-off from nearby cinnamon plantations. The major occupation of the local people is fishing and agriculture (cinnamon and coconut). Poaching of wild animals and waterfowl is unfortunately increasing, and extensive use of fertilisers and consequent abundant growth of invasive species, e.g. Najas marinas or Annona glabra, are factors of concern.
