Tripadvisors tilnærming til anmeldelser
Hver Tripadvisor-anmeldelse går gjennom et automatisert sporingssystem før den legges ut. Dette systemet samler inn informasjon som svarer på følgende spørsmål: Hvordan, hva, hvor og når. Hvis systemet oppdager noe som muligens strider imot retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet, blir anmeldelsen ikke publisert.
Når systemet oppdager et problem, kan en anmeldelse automatisk avvises, sendes til anmelderen for bekreftelse eller gjennomgås manuelt av teamet vårt av innholdsspesialister. Disse spesialistene jobber døgnet rundt for å opprettholde kvaliteten av anmeldelsene på nettstedet vårt.
Teamet vårt sjekker hver anmeldelse som er lagt ut på nettstedet og bestrides av fellesskapet vårt for ikke å møte retningslinjene våre for fellesskapet.

Симпатичное место, которое можно посетить, если рядом находитесь. Небольшое озеро, прекрасная природа.

Nice reservoir (someone said you could swim in it but it was a bit brown-looking for us). We read in some reviews that there were hiking trails but we couldn't find any and there was no one there that spoke English well enough to ask. There is a limited area in which to walk around the reservoir, from what we could so. It costs 200 LKR per adult to enter. There is also an animal hospital there (they picked up an injured Shikra for us sometime previous to our visit) and there were some baby deer in an enclosure. The dirt road leading to the reservoir is quite bumpy and in poor condition. It wasn't crowded when we were there and if you went early in the morning, you could probably spot a lot of birds.

If you are into birdwatching and based in the Matara - Galle area, then this is a very convenient place to spend a few hours birding, with a surprisingly good outcome. I spent about 2 hours, 7 to 9 am, and saw over 20 species, out of which 2 were Sri Lankan endemics that I had missed in fancier places (e.g. Sinharaja): the SL Grey Hornbill and the Crimson-fronted Barbet. Add to that Scarlet Minivet, Black-headed Cuckooshrike, and Golden-fronted Leafbird and you've got a nice little 'niche' list already! Photo opportunities are also better than in Sinharaja. I didn't have a guide with me so I didn't venture into the rainforest, but the area just around the HQ is quite rewarding.
Normally the place opens at 7am,but you can be there earlier if you like. There's a gate blocking the road, but you can open it by pushing with your bare hands, it's not locked. You'll have to pay an entrance fee of 200 rupees.
Nice landscape too if you're there at dawn, spectacular mist over the lake. Enjoy!

Interesting experience and incredibly picturesque with the old rainforest surrounded by reservoir. Would have been better had a recognised been available. Might be worth travellers tring to organise a guide before visiting. Watch out for the leeches.

Went with a bunch of wild life enthusiasts on a day trip. Reached there by about 7.30am. We were wonderfully surprised to see so many bird species in such a small area in such a short time. Saw about 35 species. Some were almost posing for photos. Unfortunately I did not have my camera with me. The surrounding area to the conservation centre next to the reservoir is so calm and beautiful. Our guide sampath was extremely co-operative and knowledgeable. We took 2 trails. One alongside the reservoir and the other in kottawa. Both through forests. There had been heavy rain before we arrived. The trails were teaming with leaches. Fat fellows. Do go with proper attire. But the area surrounding the centre was sunny and dry and free of them. We saw couple of rescued birds and animals in the hospital which runs on private funding by a bank.
So it was a nice experience and we learnt many interesting facts from sampath( call him on 0774100401).

We booked a six hour trip from Galle to this rainforest...it wasn't cheap...it involved a taxi and a guide. It was supposed to be from 8.00am till 2.00pm....we were back in Galle shortly between 11 & 12. Taxi delivered us...just under an hour...guide then took us round the forest....clasping his ear occasionally to hear non-existent bird sounds. The highlight of the the trip was a snail...regular garden snail. The guide was looking for extras as he claimed he had added some extras in, and his kids were starving somewhere in a garret. He didn't get them. And it was all very boring anyway.

If you want to go on one of these trips, get a tuk tuk driver...we had a wonderful lad, who took us to the beach every day, and returned for us in the afternoon....lovely decent honest man...he also took us to see a temple. His name is Fahim and his number is +94 77 677 8161.

Just a 30 min drive from Galle and only 15 from Unawatuna beach this a great spot to see another side of Sri Lanka. Beautiful forest and lovely resevoir plus a small wildlife sanctuary. Worth a visit.

In Hiyara is a hospital for wild animals. This is were a wild animal will be helped when he got an injury. There are a lot of animals, mostly birds, who have sufferd damage from electricity.

We can't say that it is nice to see these animals with severe injuries, but if this centre was not there they would surely die.

Our opinion: If you like wildlife and want to support a good animal hospital, go visit the place.

Da ich so langsam alle Aktivitäten im Süden gemacht habe, sind wir auf diesen kleinen friedvollen Ort gestossen.... Das Reservat wird eher selten von Touris besucht, gut es ist auch keine Attraktion in dem Sinne... Tiere, die angefahren etc wurden, finden hier unterschlupf und werden dann, wenn sie wieder gesund sind in die Freiheit zurück gelassen... Somit ist es Glückssache, welche Tiere gerade hier sind.... Aber die Landschaft ist dort sehr ruhig und friedvoll und auf uns wirkte sie magisch... Auch sind 200 Rupies mal ein mehr als fairer Preis... Würde diesen Ort empfehlen, wenn man eh hier in der Gegend ist und mal völlig entspannt ohne andere Menschen ein Päuschen braucht...

Hiyare forest is one of the small rain forest patches located in the Galle district. The specialty of this attraction is , that it is located around a reservoir. The reservoir was said to be initially built in 1911 to supply water to the city of Galle.

The forest patch is a environmentally special and sensitive area as it hoses for some rare and endemic fauna. Therefore its not recommended for visitors who travel just for fun.

The Wildlife Conservation Society - Galle, has set up their office, animal hospital and a research center near the reservoir. The are doing a great work in protecting, researching and conservation the nature.

Interested travelers can meet the officials there and learn more about their work and even pay a visit to see animals getting treatments and under re rehabilitation.
