Talangama Wetlands

Sum up

Located just a few kilometres from Colombo’s city centre, the Talangama Wetlands are an oasis of peace within a sprawling urban jungle and are one of the last remaining wetlands in Sri Lanka’s capital, the others having been built upon. This marshland is extraordinarily diverse and attracts a lot of wildlife, including 100 species of bird, numerous types of butterfly and dragonfly and some small mammals which are more commonly spotted in the early morning or late evening. Talangama is a fantastic choice if you are a keen birder, beginning your Sri Lanka birding holiday or seeking a tranquil spot in the heart of the island’s capital city.
