The flowing artesian well – Wahawa Hot Springs

Wahawa Hot Springs lies in a rural village off Padiyatalawa. There are 18 springs scattered in the village and the paddy fields. They are built in form of tanks but it seems that only a few that are being used. Among these wells are flowing artesian well which is used by the villages for bathing and washing.

Padiyatalawa lies on the Ampara District, Eastern Province of Sri Lanka. It can be reached from Bibile or Mahiyangana from one end and from Mahaoya from the other end. The turn off to Whawa is just before the Padiyatalawa Police station if you travel from Bibile or Mahiyangana.

At the turn off you will see the above board. Although it says 10 km its approx 14 km from the this junction. The tar road continues for approx 11.5 km and then you need to turn off to a gravel road which continues for another 2.5 km though thick jungle. You will need a 4×4 vehicle on rainy days to travel this path.
