Sri Lanka is blessed with number of Hot Springs. Unfortunately due the the LTTE terrorists most of these springs were not accessible to the normal traveler. All except one was located in unsafe areas. The only safe hot spring was the one at Mahapelessa ( Sooriyawewa ). But with the destruction of the of the LTTE, all these places are now freely accessible to all.
There are about 9 recognized hot springs in the country.
- Polonnaruwa District
- Ampara District( see attached PDF file for the Road map for the Springs in Ampara District)
- Hambanthota District
- Madunagala (aka Mahapelessa, Sooriyawewa)
