Fodor's Review

Talamgama offers an escape from Colombo just a short drive east from downtown—though to get here you'll need your own car or a taxi ride. This area of wetland around the small Talangama Lake is a haven for nature lovers and a great place for a walk. Around 100 bird species have been sighted here, reptiles abound, and monkeys are often seen, too. It's also home to countless species of butterflies and dragonflies. But most of all, this is a welcome oasis of green calm away from the urban sprawl—a place to forget city life, if only for a few hours. The best times to see wildlife are early morning and late afternoon, when the midday sun is less strong.
