This is one of the most central locations in the park and the access road runs between the forest and the water body permitting the visitor to have a clear view of any animal that come to drink. This is one the most picturesque locations in the park as well.

This water body can be reached by taking the road to the left form the Borupan Junction that used to be referred to as the “Clapham Junction” in the past.

I have observed many species of mammals at this location including Leopard, Sloth Bear, Wild Buffalo, Wild Boar, Sambar, Spotted Deer, Brown, Grey and Ruddy Mongoose, Tufted Grey Langur and Toque Monkey. During the height of the dry season a large tusker is known to visit Borupan Wila. When the water levels are low large flocks of Painted Storks and Lesser Whistling Teal become a common site.  I have also observed Lesser Adjutants, White-necked Storks, Spoonbills, White-winged Black Terns, Little Terns, White Ibis, Little Grebe and Cotton Teals at Borupan Wila. The rarely seen Ceylon Trogan is also sighted around this water body.

I have observed the Borupan Wila Female (BWF 1) and its offspring Borupan Wila Male 1 (BWMC 1), Borupan Wila Male 2 (BWMC 2) and Kumbuk Wila Female 1 (KWFC 1)
