Providing sanctuary for a few remaining birdlife that are nationally threatened, bird watching in this important site will make your trip to Sri Lanka worthwhile. Find a wide range of wetland birds, such as Slat breasted Crake, Black Bittern and Weathercock. You can also mix it with Grey Mongoose and Hanuman Languor spotting.
Bird identification and Photography
During your bird watching expedition, make it a point to identify as many birds as possible and take pictures of them at the same time. You might never come this way again, so take photos for great souvenirs or as materials for your bird documentary.
With pockets of scrub jungles found in the area, walking in the jungle is one of the many things to do when in the Kalametiya Bird Sanctuary. Enjoy the wet and somewhat challenging trek.
