Filled with all the rubbish in the colombo. It's not a must see place. You can always see it while you travelling in gall road.

Ideal location for you to relax and enjoy. Of course boat rides are possible. And prior arrangements shall have to be made to spend your time on the Islands in the Bolgoda lake. Fantastic guest houses with buffet arrangements are available around the lake bank.
