Designated a national park in 1980, Lahugala national park is primarily based around three reservoirs-Lahugala, Kitulana and Sengamuwa. Essentially a dry zone, the park has flat lands with some boulders. The main vegetation in the park is beru, a tall grass which is also the food for the elephants. The main road A4 runs through the park and the route marker '191 mile' provides a great place for observing elephants. It also gives a good view of the area. The tanks/reservoirs attract a good amount of bird life along with other species like wild bore & spotted deer. This park is great for elephant enthusiasts and bird watchers.
