  • Great place a cave pond underneath blue water amazing adventure very hard place to travel but scary and amazing adventure take care if you are trying to travel this place
  • Located in Ravana Ella Sanctuary and it's an underground cave system directs to a pond known as "Nil Diya Pokuna" i.e "Blue Water Pond" which is scenic an filled with breathtaking beauty. There are guides who can be hired from the village and they will guide and provide all the necessary instructions. It is prohibited to enter into the sanctuary and these guides posses relevant license to enter in to the sanctuary. It is extremely dangerous to enter to the cave without these guiding people (locals in the village) and one wrong step will lead to serious consequences. Only these guides know where the step should be kept in each place in the cave and it is strictly recommended to adhere to all instructions provided. Some points of the cave is extremely slippery and muddy therefore it is advisable to wear appropriate footwear and clothes. Tour guides will provide lights, but it is recommended to take few flashlights since the cave is filled with utter darkness. The pond area is scenic and large and the maximum depth of the pond is around 92 feet. Better to follow relevant safety protocols (life jackets are not being provided) if any one is interested to swim in the pond at their own risk.
