What to Expect
Handapanagala Reservoir is 16 km from Wallawaya town. There is a rock plain on the either side of the dam. It is full of water throughout the year – fed by the Kirindi Oya river.
The inland fishery industry is big around these parts. You’ll surely see some locals fishing for dinner. Good luck.The reservoir is popular among locals and foreigners alike as an elephant watching place.
Elephants gather at the reservoir every evening. For this reason dusk is the best time to visit Handapanagala Reservoir. Any time is a good time to bird watch at the reservoir. There are dozens of birds in and around the water. Probably also looking for their dinner.
