Description

Muthurajawela is Sri Lanka's largest single expanse of marsh. It covers an area of 8000 acres, from the mouth of the Kelani River, where it meets the sea, to the outskirts of the Negombo lagoon. The marsh is thicker and wilder towards the Negombo end and is home to all kinds of birds, small mammals, snakes, butterflies and dragon flies and even crocodiles. 40% of Sri Lanka's vertebrate species are recorded here, many of which are endemic. It is recorded that there are some 126 resident bird species and 40 migratory species.

A heaven for fishermen, who use traditional methods of net, line and fish kraals are still employed to rake in lagoon fish, prawns and ornamental varieties from the waters of the marsh.

The main attraction of Muthurajawela is a guided boat trip that shows you a variety of landscapes and ecosystems. Learn the different techniques employed by the fisher folk of the area as the boat slips past nets, shrimp pots and traps constructed with matting to form "kraals" in water. It is truly a nature lover's delight.
