Akurukaduwa Limestone Cave and the Cascade – අකුරුකඩුව හුනුගල් ගුහාව හා දියඇල්ල
Would you believe that there is a huge limestone cave in Meegahakivula? Yes there is one and it has only a small entrance like a window. To reach this cave one needs to get to Meegahakivula and take the Ketawatta road for one mile. After you reach Akurukaduwa Gramaseva office take the rd towards Galkada and get in touch with J. M. Jayasundara (only few knows how to reach the cave).
There is a paddy field where infinity could be seen and at the edge of it is a drop. Along that drop there is a “Siyambala tree” the cave is on the right hand side of this and few feet below on the slopes. The entrance is so small that you would neglect it that’s why you need a guide. This is the largest limestone cave I have been to and the find was worth every effort.
There is a beautiful cascade which starts at the left hand side of the paddy field and we did manage to see it when we lost our way initially.
