Driving from the park entrance this tank can be reached by taking the road to the left just beyond Kalagedi Bokkuwa. The distance is approximately 3 kilometres from the turn off from the main road.

This is a large tank that has a few boulders and rocky surfaces in the vicinity. A rock pool was also seen and there were signs of many animals including Sloth Bears visiting this “Kema”. During the dry months Elephants are known to visit this tank regularly.

I visited this tank for the first time on 20th July 2014 and observed that it had plenty of water that would last throughout the dry months. This is an excellent locality for a camp- site.
