About Gregory Lake, Sri Lanka

A lake is a place to just sit, relax and observe the world go by, and Gregory Lake is just the place to do this. Being the most prominent attraction Nuwara Eliya, this place is a hotspot for tourists from the world over. This lake was built during the British period in 1873 under Sir William Gregory, hence the name. During that period the lake was basically used for water sports and re-creational activities.

The boats rides at this lake offer an unforgettable experience with the availability of swan boats which can be taken on hire easily. The view of the surrounding misty hills can be enjoyed peacefully sitting at this spot. The best part of this area is the pleasant and soothing atmosphere, which can be best enjoyed during the month of April.

You can also just take a stroll around the lake and observe the surroundings. This place is perfect for family outings where you can just sit and relax with them or play with the kids. The availability of pony rides is a major attraction for kids.
So, take a walk around Gregory Lake, have a bicycle ride, or a boat ride with your loved ones!
