The 'Belihuloya' stream, Sri Lanka.


The 'Belihuloya' is a stream which passes close to the Belihuloya Rest House, on the Colombo - Badulla highway. It carries clear water originating from the Horton Plains above and its water is icy-cold. On rainy days it can become a roaring muddy torrent. It is strewed with rocks and boulders and has many pools where one could bathe. However having a bath among the boulders can have its dangers where treacherous currents can drag one down.
