This is a bird paradise I would day. If you are a bird lover this is the place you should be. Calm and quite. Not that much crowded so birds can be in peacefully. Love this place a lot.

The paths to walk on hadn't been swept of leaves ever and the noise of crickets was hard to hear anything else. The locals who hardly had to pay to get in were using the few benches available to sit down on and there was no souvenir shops or people to buy rolexes or sunglasses from.

The sanctuary is located only a short distance from the Kandy city. The guard at the gate makes sure no one takes in polythene, cigarettes and alcohol etc. You could indulge in the tranquil beauty of nature within the premises. Besides the chirping of numerous birds and sounds made by monkeys, you would not hear the hustle and bustle of the busy city. There are benches placed for the tourists to sit and rest up. There is also a view point of the city from the sanctuary. A must visit to a nature lover.

It only takes about 15 minutes to reach the gate entrance of Udawattakele from the Municipal junction in Kandy. You can find the place without a hassle. There are plenty of trails that you can take once you enter to the park which can be found on the map. The best time to visit the place is in the morning around 07.00 am. So that you may be able to witness more fauna than in the afternoon. If you are lucky, you may witness Endemic animals like toque macaque, jackal, porcupine and mouse deer. Obviously 460 species of plants, especially lianas, Shrubs, herbs and small plants are survived in the jungle. There are 03 Buddhist temples are situated in this sanctuary namely they are Forest Hermitage, Senanayakaramaya and Tapovanaya. This is a good place to do meditation as well. If you want to ease of your mind this would be an ideal place. If so, you must visit this reserve in the morning as it gets crowded in the afternoon. When I visited the place, I had a feeling that this could have used to film lord of the ring as well. I would have even listened to some elfish music whilst on trial, if I had the earphones with me. It is a must to visit the sanctuary, if you are in Kandy. All in all, it is our duty to safeguard this wonderful nature reserve. Please do not throw trash into the wilderness.
