Walpolamulla


Walpolamulla

Description

Walpolamulla is one of the first villages in the list of smallest villages in Sri Lanka. According to some data sources, and various sources state that Walpolamulla is currently the smallest abandoned village in Sri Lanka as well as in Asia. Although many tourists from the Matale district walk around Matale and Riverston, this village is a place that many miss. It is located in the Knuckles Reserve in the Dumbara Valley.

Route:From Matale take the Rattota road, pass the Riverston and Pitawala falls and take the Ilukkumbura road to reach the beautiful village of Atenwala. This village can be reached by walking through a very difficult jungle road. Due to the difficulty of transport facilities to this village and the harassment caused by wild elephants and wildlife as well as the problems of water, a limited number of families living here have left the village. At present the village is left with a barren paddy field, a house and a few other ruins that have not been cultivated for years.

Situated in the Dumbara Valley of the Knuckles Reserve facing the magnificent Dumbara Range, this village has a beautiful scenery. The Dumbara Range, which rises to the horizon like a giant on one side, and the beautiful majestic waterfalls that cascade down through the jungle from time to time can be seen throughout the distance in this beautiful village.

According to some sources, Walpolamulla is the smallest village not only in Sri Lanka but also in Asia, and nothing can be said about its accuracy. However, today it is said to be the smallest uninhabited village in Sri Lanka. Despite being a difficult village, this village was once considered to be a land rich in rice and betel nut. There are other beautiful mountain ranges, waterfalls and caves in this valley. Mount Manigala is also located close to this village.
