“Beautiful but I didn't like to seeing people riding elephants”
Review of Habarana Lake

Ranked #11 of 21 things to do in Habarana
Attraction details
Reviewed 3 weeks ago

There are many lakes around Habarana and they are all beautiful. We saw a water monitor, many many birds and spectacular scenery. The manager at Vaana Resort oragnised a tuk tuk to take us around. Only spent half an hour there but it was well worth the visit. Beautiful trees and purple and white lotus flowers on the lake.

A lovely place to walk/jog around early in the morning. Plenty of birds later on and especially before sunset. Elephant walks available on the northern bank near Sorowwa Resort. Nice granite hill next to the road to Cinnamon Lodge good for views.

The clue is in the name. There is no shade, nowhere to get a drink, no obvious pathway and we saw no birds or other wild life. Probably not worth going of your way for.

This lake is teeming with birdlife both on water, on its shores as well as in the surrounding jungle. Reasonable variety of bird species can be ticked by taking a stroll alongside the lake. The still waters make for great sunset photography as well.

if the lake is not dry (so mainly, from December to July), this is something not to be missed while you are staying in Habarana. They organize catamaran rides, and the lake is full of beautiful lilies and surrounded by palm trees.
I enjoyed my ride soooo much. Just keep quite and listen nothing but the sounds of nature and the noise of the catamaran sliding gently among the lilies...
