What To Expect

Belilena Cave
Your tour starts at 8am. You will be picked up from your hotel in Colombo and then head to Kithulgala. Ensure that you bring a packed breakfast with you if you are unable to have your meal at the hotel. Keeping in mind that it is a fair hike to get there and the sun won’t be too high during these periods. Wear long pants and closed shoes to avoid getting thorny burns and insect bites. Bringing some salt for the leeches, mosquito repellent, and rain gear would be a good idea too. You will reach Kithulgala by approximately 11am.

You will then be hiking through the rough terrain of the jungle, on a narrow trail to reach the caves of importance. The area is a rainforest, with rough and slippery ground, dense undergrowth and many rare birds and other wildlife; providing lots of photo opportunities. It is also prone to sudden rainfall. You will reach the Belilena caves within an hour. They lie behind a gently cascading waterfall. Reaching them is a slightly difficult climb.
