Back in 2011, February I myself along with another 02 well experienced trekkers decided to explore the Prehistoric world of “Waulpane” which dates back to approx 500 million years..!! We started Early in the morning from Colombo and by mid-day we reached the rendezvous point close to Pallebedda.
After Reaching the rendezvous point in Pallebedda we got into a 4WD Jeep to reach the Cave entrance after driving through an un-even road for approx 08kms starting from the Sangapala Market.

Once we reached the cave entrance we took some photos and entered the cave with the support of a local trekker who provided us with some LED torches and a patrol-max which he carried right throughout the cave from one end to the other [He owned our heartiest respect as it was quite a difficult task he did on behalf of us by carrying the patrol-max throughout] It was such an awesome, unforgettable experience as we were compelled to even swim at least around 8-10ft at one point inside the thick dark cave across a small natural rock pool which was filled with water that is being gathering there for decades of years..!!
Ending the great caving experience we were lucky to complete our expedition after having a look at some fossils that were said to be more than 500 Million years old..!! Located to the left hand side wall of the cave..
