This is located little bit away from main road. Kitulgala is famous for White Water Rafting, so you can visit Belilena Cave once you visit Kitulgala

bit of a hike from palmstone retreat. better ask the hotel to arrange transportation. once you finally get there its a nice place to visit once. (the view is definitely worth it) avoid bathing in the waterfall on top as could be dangerous.
