Client's Testimonials
Caving Waulpane
"Staff is very friendly - safe driving
Long drive to visit small cave
Interesting Cave, but not a cave for expert speleologists as it is very small and has no tecnical passage (it is only a show cave but very interesting one) ".
Suggestions Combine caving tour with other activity such as walk in the nearby forest/visit to village or school/ experience village life (foreigners find this interesting)

Give more precise into on Cave - length, age time spend in cave, type of trip in cave (need spare cloths)

The cave could be made accessible to more tourists, hand rails/ handholds/ foot holds are installed at slippery and steep sections. A show cave must put safety first.

Overall - Good experience - Thanks to Eco team staff Eshan, Ruwan and the driver (good music ......!!)

waulpane caving, caving in waulpane, waulpane cave sri lanka, sri lanka caving tripsThis cave is an isolated cavern set against the eastern slopes of the Rakwana Range. It contains a large number of stalactites and stalagmites and is estimated to be approximately 500 million years old. You will enter and walk through this 100 feet high cave to discover this prehistoric world.
While there are few fossils visible in the caverns wall, the main building process is still continuing. The stream, which runs through this cave, occupies half the ground space inside it and at the centre meets an eighty foot waterfall that falls on to it from close to the top of the cave, giving you a mysterious and a thrilling experience. You may encounter few water monitors, Amphibians and thousands of Bats in this fully dark cave.

This beautiful hillside location is a climatically transitional area, linking both the dry and wet zones and the hill and low country at an altitude of less than 1500m. As a result, the vegetation consists of moist semi-evergreen forests, tropical savanna forests, dry patana grasslands and montane temperate forests, making it one of the richest bio-diversity spots in Sri Lanka - a perfect location for nature lovers.

In the ancient times people living in this area were engaged in the agriculture and steel industry. If we were to look further back in time, even the presence of pre-historic settlements were proved by the finding of skeletal remains of the 29,000 year old pre-historic man " Homosapien balangodensis" in this area.

Another very important aspect of this location is that as it is situated in the middle of the Hill and Low Countries , there are a large number of beautiful locations and so many waterfalls not forgetting the forests, grasslands, caves etc.
