Negombo, Sri Lanka

Explore Muthurajawela wetlands by boat

Muthurajawela is a large 7,580-acre marsh in Sri Lanka, which together with the Negombo lagoon forms a unique and highly diverse ecosystem to a variety of Sri Lanka’s wildlife. Being also the country's largest saline coastal peat bog, this marsh is home to 192 distinct species of flora and 209 distinct species of fauna, as well as another 102 species of birds, perfect for sightseeing and boating tours from Negombo and Colombo. The boat trip starts at the Muthurajawela Marsh Centre, along the historical Dutch Canal to the Negombo Lagoon and to the bordering mangroves, and is guided by the staff to avoid serious harm to the marsh ecosystem. Here, you will have best chances to observe water monitors, toque monkeys, and many bird species, such as egrets, purple herons, kingfishers, lesser whistling ducks, and  moorhens.
