Kirinda

"Go Wild in Tissa" is an annual event like the Nuwara Eliya April season. We want to promote Hambantota and Tissamaharama as tourist attraction.

Kataragama or Poson season are not good to promote this concept "Go Wild in Tissa" program.

This has different attractions. Because of this special festival it can improve the economic level in these areas also" said Tourism Project Manager, Hambantota District Chamber of Commerce , Prasanna Gunewardena.

This is a very good season for Yala because many migrant birds can be seen there.

People who visit Tissamaharama could view the Tissamaharama temple, Yatala temple, Ramba viharaya, Kirinda, Akurugoda go on a boat safari on Walawe ganga and Tissa lake, Rekawa Turtle Hatchery, Ussangoda, Hummanaya blow hole, Bandagiriya tank and temple, water springs at Madunagala, Bata Atha agricultural park and diving.

Yala National Park


Yala National Park

Yala National Park is the island's most popular forest reserve. Yala has one of the world's largest population of leopards and those secretive animals can often be seen sun bathing on rocks or lying on the branches of a tree. Even if they're not on view, a safari is a chance to see herds of elephants, sloth bear and other wildlife.

Ussangoda

This the legendary landing place of Ravana, the evil king of Hindu mythology who piloted his special peacock chariot across the skies.

The area's landscape is unusual and its red earth is barren- possibly the result of a meteor that struck in ancient times.

Kirinda


Walawe river

Kirinda, with its unique temple, rocky beach and spectacular views, is only 10 km from Tissamaharama.

From the rocks, a statue of an early queen looks out over the sea; representing a part of Sri Lanka's heritage and a dynasty that reigned for centuries.

On a clear day, the famous lighthouse at great basses reef appears at a distance.
