We just walked around the lake as there was no need to pay 200rs pp to get into the gardens etc. They are well kept but you can see that from the road. No need to pay unless you want to get on a boat or one of those swan boat things.

Boat hire is available at the other end of the lake also.

Plus not a big fan of the tiered pricing structure of locals and tourists. Not playing that game unless its something I'm desperate to see.

Photos supplied.

It is a good lake.
you have boating and water sports but limited.
It does have capability for small sea planes to land. President of sri lanka uses this facility.

we spent time reading in front of the lake as it was a nice sunny day. There are benches in front so you could spend time and the setting is so perfect.
We were lucky the day was good.

Well it was raining heavily and we were wondering what to do. Since Gregory lake was closest, we decided to go boating. I realised that there are advantages when it rains 1.the boat man was ready to give great discounts 2.the feeling of the rain around you when your in the lake is heavenly.

We took the motor motor boat And cut off the engines enroute. We saw beautiful herons and other birds and also enjoyed the serenity of the place.

I think if you like peace and quiet, it's the place to be.
