HI Guyz,

Has anyone been to Sembuwatta Lake, Matale???

This is somewhere near Hunnas falls (Elkaduwa Hunugala road). As I have heard this park is a wonderful place to spend a day. It has a Lake and a landscaped area with a good view. If anyone knows the place, please update me as I am planning to spend this coming weekend in Kandy. Please suggest me some nice and cool places where I can go from Kandy as well.

Thanks,
Amila

Hi All,

Last weekend some of my friends have been to Sembuwatte and stayed the night over there. So I thought of sharing the information I got from them for someone who loves this place.

Night out stay 500 per person (have to stay in a summer hut or carry your own tent) take your own provisions and gas for cooking. Toilet facilities are available. Take blankets as it freezes at night.

Day charges 150 per person.

Swimming pool with natural water is available for use.

From Alkaduwa Hunugala road, turn left & there are 2 KMs to the park. A Van, jeep or a vehicle with a good ground clearance will take you there comfortably. A car will struggle a lot or will not do it.

Cheers,
Amila

Hi All,

Last weekend we went to this place with a crew of 15.It was a very calm & quiet unique place to spend a day.There is a swimming pool with natural water and few summer huts.

The contact person Mr.Radley is the Senior Superintendent of the Elkaduwa estate is a very helpful.He helped us to go the top of estate (4km) by arranging a lorry because the Rosa bus we went there couldn't go beyond his bungalow.

Charges per person is Rs.150 and anyone can spend the night there too.

Best way to travel may be a van or jeep because the road in side the estate rough.If anyone wants to visit this place contact Mr.Radley on 0718043341 and he will help you.

We had a nice time there & have to thank Mr.Radley who developed this place to the present situation and hope that we have to help him to do more developments by going there.

Thanks,
Gayan

Hi all,

I was been to this place some time ago by public transport,We went for hiking actually.
You can easily go using public transport if you're in Kandy or has stop over at Kandy

Kandy-Wattegama bus -> Wattegama-Alkaduwa bus ->by foot to Sembuwatte lake

From Alkaduwa to Sembuwatte,i think there is about 7km or something(not sure),we didn't go directly to Sembuwatte but roamed through the other estates and then went through tea plantations to the lake.If you follow the main route,the road is kinda good(not possible by car I think,jeep or van is necessary)

I'll upload a trip report as time permits Smiley

I can't remember about rooms there,there was a toilet but not in good condition though.There was a hut or something like that.
I went there by foot 8km hike  from Alkaduwa.Alkaduwa is a small town,but I don't have any idea about any accommodation there.
I strongly recommend not to use your car,you'll need a high clearance vehicle coz some parts of the road is not suitable for car.
