Meethirigala Forest Reserve

A little 368 hectare-patch of tranquil and peaceful protected rainforest reserve called Meethirigala, can be found just an hour’s drive on the A4 from Colombo. Meethirigala has a Buddhist hermitage frequented by many devotees and is surrounded by lush green rubber plantations found in the vicinity and is home to many species of birds, amphibians and lizards amid its rich vegetation of forest, bamboo and mosses irrigated by its many fresh-water streams.

Its complex eco-system of fauna and flora includes many species of butterflies, dragonflies and other insects. Meethirigala is also home to many species of birds such as the Black-Capped Bul Bul, Yellow-Fronted Barbet, Chestnut-Headed Bee-Eater, White-Rumped Shama, both the Black and the Yellow-browed Bulbuls. Some other species found here are the Tickle’s Blue flycatcher, Dark-fronted Babblers, Black-napped Monarch, Scarlet Minivet, Crested Hawk-Eagle and the Serpent Eagle among many more.

Meethirigala can be reached from Colombo via Kaduwela, Hanwella, and Pugoda, to Meethirigala.
