Habarana Lake Reviews
哈伯勒内湖是一个不收门票的风景区。这也是一座古老的蓄水池，索罗瓦酒店前面大象漫步的湖滨道路，就是一道蓄水的堤坝。湖滨有很多度假村和酒店，平时游人很少，到是有很多本地人在嬉戏游玩，从酒店步行而出，几分钟就走到了湖边。夕阳西下，湖畔游人稀疏，烟波浩渺一派异域风情，漫步湖滨品味古老的锡兰文明，让人流连忘返。 more »Lake Haberone is a no-ticket attraction. It's also an old cistern, and the lakeside road in front of the Solova Hotel, where the elephants stroll, is a water-storage levee. Lakeside has a lot of resorts and hotels, usually few visitors, to have a lot of locals playing, walking from the hotel, a few minutes to the lake. Sunset, lakeside visitors sparse, smoke waves a strange exotic style, stroll the lakeside taste the ancient Ceylon civilization, let people forget.
A pleasant walk with some viewing areas, and plenty of birds to spot, although you do have to watch where you are walking at times. more »
Very nice place with nature
Pleasant Experience Since we arrived in Habarana early, around 0930 on 8th August 2018, well before the checking-in time at the hotel, we decided to while away the time by visiting Habarana Lake, situated about 4 km from Habarana Junction. It was an unexpectedly pleasant and an enjoyable experience. This is a public place and requires no permission nor tickets. We went along the gravel path on top of the lake bund. On one side is the lake and on the other side is a lush green forest and trees with chirping and twittering birds. We saw some people from the village enjoying a bath in the lake. There were some boats with fishermen too at the centre of the lake. At the end of the lake bund is the spillway that carries spill water when the tank spills over. There is a sluice gate too that provides irrigation water to the fields downstream. Although this walk along the bund would not take more than 30 minutes one way we spent about two hours enjoying the scenery and soaking its quiet beauty. Although you can drive along the path you have to turn back at the end of the bund. Situated close to the entrance is a safari company that carries people atop elephants. These colourfully dressed elephants with its human cargo too are taken along the bund accompanied by the mahouts. Though I found this sight rather distressing, many tourists did ascend the seats placed on the elephants for a ride lasting perhaps about 30 minutes.
