About Kandalama Reservoir

Kandalama Reservoir is 4.8 km long and 2.3 km wide, with a square area of 102 km2 and a volume of 33,300,000 m3. The walls of the dams have a height of 21 m and a width of 1,600 m. It is so huge that people tend to wonder whether it is made by giants.

The lake has two outlets, the first one measures about a hundred yards, through which a river is constantly flowing and the second one is near the opposite side of the embankment, which is usually dry, and carries off water only when the lake is unusually high.

This is a popular place among tourists and you will see locals bathing in this area.
