Giant “Dun” Tree at Atweltota – Largest Tree in Wet Zone
This massive “Dun” tree supposed to be the largest tree in the low country, is more than 150 feet in height and 28 feet in circumference.
This Dun tree can be seen just near the demarcation of Kalutara – Sabaragamuwa Districts which place is popularly know as Dunukeiyagala at Atweltota. The tree lies just by the road and the Akasa Bokkuwa ( Ahas Bokkuwa or the The Sky bridge) lies close by on the same route.
This was built about 100 years ago joining two rock cliffs on the main road when construction technology was very primitive. This is more of a 30 foot high culvert rather than a bridge which would make this one of the tallest culverts in the country.-0-
