About Beddagana Wetland Park in Colombo

Located just outside of the city limits of Colombo, Beddagana Wetland Park is a nature park stretching over an area of 18 hectares. This natural expanse of Beddagana lies within the urbanized administrative capital Sri Jayewardenepura Kotte. The new Parliament building is in proximity to this lovely wetland park. It’s a green mosaic of wetlands surrounding the beautiful waterfronts of Diyawanna Lake.

The is home to about 100 plant species, 80 bird species, 20 species of fish, 10 mammal species, and five species of amphibians. Beddagana Wetland Park is located within the Sri Jayewardenepura Kotte Bird Sanctuary and hence, is a popular nesting site for many endemic birds, butterflies, dragonflies, and mammals. A variety of floral species is common to this wetland, with endemic and threatened habitat. From August to April, the park is a popular stopover for migrant birds heading south each year. Birdlife can be observed during this dry spell of the year. The park is operated by Urban Development Authority of the capital city. 

From the main entrance, there are two separate paths in the park visitors can explore. A wooden path bordered by Diyawanna Lake is created so that natural habitat remains protected. A short walk on this path allows visitors to observe a vast array of plant and bird species. A duck-filled pond nearby adds to the beauty of the park’s peaceful environs. The second path, known as the Forest Trail, takes visitors into the heart of the park via a leafy dirt trail. At the end of this track, a wooden deck named Diyawanna Floating Deck allows a beautiful view of the wetlands. A short walk past the park school, the Migratory Bird Trail is a great place to spot different bird species. All in all, Beddagana Wetland Park is a perfect spot to come close to nature.

    Saravanan's 4 days trip to Colombo

    Cab was good enough but driver had problem understanding English. We had to repeat everything twice/thrice for him to understand. Driver not familiar with the places as well, so we wasted time searching for hotel and other areas. @Wewa Addara, food was good, nice hospitality, rooms were also good. Only issue was with the location and approach to the Hotel. Since driver doesnt know this place, we lost valuable time searching for the hotel. Google Maps doesnt show the right direction, so please do not use it. @Nelinsa, Kandy, awesome hospitality, nice makeshift rooms, good enough for one night-stay. Food was good, slight Indian touch. Would definitely recommend this place. @Sanctuary Hills, Newara Eliya, one place to avoid, looks deserted. Staff were not very welcoming, they looked and acted strange. Place was so cold and no heater in the room. No rug or heavy bedsheets as well. We traveled with elders and had to suffer. One place to remove from the list of recommended hotels. Other than these, the trip was fine. We were able to cover most of the destinations mentioned in the itinerary. It could have been better if the driver knew the place, so that we could have visited more places. It could have been better if the driver went to some Indian restaurants nearby rather than stopping by in any restaurant on the way.

    Muhammed's 7 days trip to Colombo

    The saying goes that what you pay is what you get, BUT our travel arrangements tailor made by CEYATHRA DESTINATIONS SRI LANKA exceeded all our expectations. Good value for money is an understatement. Mr. Gheyan provided the best quality hotels and the most amazing client service that I've ever experienced. From the time we landed to our departure from Sri lanka he was always in contact with us to make sure that we were comfortable. The hotels which he provided were luxurious and met all our expectations. Being travelled to over 60 countries, I've never experienced such a well planned and organised tour. All this was made possible by Mr. Gheyan and our very own personal driver Mr. Chatura. Most definitely he is the number 1 tour operator in Sri lanka. We were a group of 8 people(2 families) who occupied 4 rooms in each of the hotels which he recommended. And without a doubt he gave us better accommodation than expected. I would definitely rate his service 11 out 10. I would definitely travel again to Sri Lanka to visit the other parts which we haven't seen but I would only book my trip with Mr. Gheyan from CEYATHRA DESTINATIONS. Thanks to Ceyathra DESTINATIONS for making our Sri Lanka trip the best we've ever been on. You guys are special and I will definitely refer anyone to use your company for their travels. The whole trip was an unforgettable experience. 1 special memory of the trip was that Mr. Gheyan arranged a surprise birthday cake for my son. And this was special to us. Our driver Mr. Chatura was never late to pick us up for any excursion and was an excellent guide with vast knowledge of the area.

    Srilanka agent Shafna was good at handling situations but Indian representative was useless. Hotel at Mirissa was pathetic. Staff, room, food & services were well below expectations. Driver had very little knowledge of English, we were told that he is driver cum guide but it's not at all like a guide. Laluna Ayurveda at bentota was big and spacious. We enjoyed water sports and beach at this location. This I think was best moment.
