About Avissawella

Chase waterfalls in Avissawella, a lively township surrounded by lush forests and wetlands. Explore the wildlife-rich botanical garden and visit the ruins of an ancient Hindu temple built in the 16th century. The countryside is dotted with hidden waterfalls where you can swim in natural pools and sunbathe on the rocks.

Things to do in Avissawella

Discover more than 30 hectares of lush wetland ecosystems in the Seethawaka Botanical Garden. The park doubles as a scientific research area and protects rare plants and flowers. Stroll along scenic trails, enjoy a picnic on the grass and rent a swan boat to paddle around the lake. Walk up to the lookout for fantastic views over the gardens.

Follow the jungle-covered trail to Kumari Ella Falls. A pair of mountain streams cascade down the rocky riverbed and create a series of waterfalls and natural pools. Ranmudu Ella is another great place to cool off. The falls plunge into an emerald-green pool that’s perfect for swimming.

Visit Barandi Kovila and walk around the ruins of a Hindu temple built in the 16th century. The moss-covered stone monument is all that’s left of the ancient Sitavaka city. Look closely to see elaborate leaves, flowers and Hindu symbols carved into the stone blocks.

Make a splash at LeisureWorld Water Park. Popular with local families, the park features slides, swimming pools and water rides. Enjoy a relaxing float along the lazy river and speed down the multi-lane racing slides.

Try rice and curry, the national dish of Sri Lanka, at restaurants in Avissawella. Instead of one curry, you’ll receive a rainbow of dishes starring pumpkin, green beans, eggplant and lentils. Top your curries with a dollop of coconut chutney.
