An exotic wildlife hub, Madu Ganga is a great place to start your quest for the thrill-factor in your vacation in Sri Lanka. Featuring a dramatic landscape, Madu Ganga offers the most picturesque stretches for cruising.
It is where birds reign
A paradise for the avid ornithologists and photographers, Madu Ganga is home for over 111 bird species. Although kingfishers and cormorants are often spotted by the water, there are many other species of capture-worthy birds soaring in the sky around this dense ecosystem.
Also lends well to cruising…
Watch the exotic local life unfold along the riverbanks on a river cruise. Those who are intrigued to explore the river’s breathtaking topography can try river cruises offered by a Balapitiya luxury resort found close to the river such as The River House by Asia Leisure.
Can’t forget those tropical spectacles
A river lagoon with a 915-hectare water body, the Madu Ganga features some of the most stunning riverside spectacles that deserve many camera clicks! With over 300 species of mangroves, 19 of which are endemic, the river is a specimen of Sri Lankan tropical beauty.
The Indigenous flavours
Don’t forget to sample the different kinds of authentic flavour combinations including “Kirala Juice” prepared from Mangrove Apples or the “Kirala Fruit”.
