Pleasant place to be at - lake surrounded by mountains & fog. Scenic beauty & temperature had dropped as it had rained the morning we visited. This lake offers water sports which is a bit highly priced. They also had horse riding for kids. Many...More

We spent a relaxing afternoon meandering around Lake Gregory. I fail to understand how well off western visitors complain about spending an extra £1 or so than local residents to enter a place which was built by the labour and servitude of local Sri Lankans....More

Amazing view of the lake with beautiful landscaping. Water activities and restaurants with mist wind will change your mind like you are in real Europe. Even though it was slight rain we enjoy a lot.

The new look of the lake is really beautiful. It has been nicely landscaped recently. It is really enjoyable to have a walk the evening. Few shops alone the walking Path. You can have a snack. Very nice flower beds. Enjoy your evening walk.

The lake is clean and well maintained. Boating is very expensive and not value for money. Skip it if possible.

Didn't see anyone swimming. I guess the water itself is not that suitable for swimming, but for a boat trip around is good. You can do water biking.
