It currently ranks as one of the widest falls in the country. This waterfall measures approximately 25 m (82 ft) in high and cascade from an oval-shaped concave rock outcrop.

The range of habitats gives rise to a good range of wildlife.
Yala has the world's highest concentration of Leopards, although seeing this largely nocturnal carnivore still requires some luck. There are good numbers of Asian Elephants, Crocodile, Wild Boar, Water Buffalo and Grey Langurs amongst other large animals. The open parkland attracts birds of prey such as White-bellied Sea Eagle and the wetlands have waders, Painted Storks, and the rare Black-necked Stork. Evening proceed to Bentota.

This is not so with many of the other hatcheries around the island whose beaches host only some of the species.
The centre functions mainly as a hatchery and makes huge efforts to increase the rate of hatching, and survival of baby turtles in their very initial stages. However the care centre also works on sick or injured adults, treating them and releasing them back into the ocean.

NatureWings arranged an excellent trip to Sri Lanka for us. They left absolutely no place for complaints. The hotels were all excellent and the food provided was very good. Our guide was a very nice person and made sure that we were comfortable and did not miss any place of interest. Our trip manager, Soumalya, constantly kept in touch and their cooperation was commendable. On a side note, I'd advise travellers to keep some extra cash as Sri Lanka has gotten a bit more expensive, mainly due to the present pandemic scenario.
