  • Address: Gregory Lake, Nuwara Eliya, Sri Lanka
  • Admission: Entry into park: 200 rupees
Gregory Lake is one of the most popular tourist attractions in Nuwara Eliya. Originally a huge swamp area, this man-made lake was constructed in 1873 under the government of Sir William Gregory and was used as a place for relaxation and recreation during the British rule. There are a number of interesting colonial buildings in the area left over from this era.

Today, a plethora of activities and visitor facilities have been introduced around Gregory Lake. There’s the opportunity for walking, bike riding, and horse riding, while on the lake itself, there are a number of operators offering boat rides and various watersports activities. Those who wish to get out and enjoy the lake independently can even hire a distinctive two-seater swan boat.

Practical Info

Access to the lake is via a park, which has a small entrance fee. Seaplanes from Colombo land on Gregory Lake, with the journey from the capital taking around 30 minutes.
