The Lake is quiet picturesque itself and surprisingly has quiet a bit of wild life. We spotted 2 Large Moniter lizards over 1 metre long sunning themselves on a log. Turtles, Kingfishers and lots of species of waterbirds. They negative is, that around most of the Lake the road is right next it with only a foot path between the road and the water. But still a must to go for stroll around the lake when in Kandy.

Walked around part of the lake while visiting the temple quite pretty. You can take a boat ride but very busy when we visited so didn't. Tuk tuk drivers abound and can become annoying whe you just want to sit and look for awhile.

This lake is the central attraction of Kandy & a drive/ walk around it is mandatory to absorb the atmosphere of Kandy
Surrounds are well maintained
