Trip Highlights – Attractions

We started the journey at 9 am and reached Medamahanuwara by 11 am. We had Breakfast at Medamahanuwara and bought some Snacks. Road to wewathenna starts after passing few meters from medamahanuwara town. There is a big name board showing the information of Bomure monument to the right side of the road. At the starting point the road divides to two directions. Upper/left road goes to Rajagala and the Lower/right road goes top Bomure.
We took Rajagala road and reached Rajagala and there we have to take the right side road.
This road goes to Wewathenna. Its always better to ask the direction from the locals. They know this place well. Also we noticed a rock bed at Rajagala assumed to be a Waterfall. But there was not water at all as we went on dry season. If anyone visiting this place better to explore this as well.
We went along the road asking direction from locals and reached the Wewathanna. Conditions of the road is bad and we managed to go with bikes.
After riding around the lake we went to see the beauty of the lake. We went in a dry season so the water levels are low.
After enjoying the beauty of the lake and plains at around 1 pm we left the place.
Im sure if the people of the area can make this place to attract people and improve their live hoods by maintaining this area properly like what the people do in Sembuwatta, matale.
Our next destination was Bomure. We came back the main raod where we started and went through the bomure road. After 1-2 km we reached the end of the road and parked the bikes.
To reach Bomure Monument we should go down through the paddy fields.
There is a resting area as well. After taking some rest we decided to move to our next attraction, which is Victoria Dam.
We travelled back to Medamahanuwara and after passing the town there is a road to Victoria Dam. When we reached the entrance the time is 3:45 pm. The gate keepers allowed us to and asked us to return by 4 pm. Because the closing time is 4 pm. We quickly looked around the area and came back as advised.
After observing the area near the entrance we returned back to home. On the way we had a nice bath in Huluganga at Ouruthota.
