This Sri Lankan National Park is Famous for…:
Elephants. The herds of Gal Oya have good feeding and water throughout the year and do not migrate in search of better food and water during the dry season, unlike the elephants in the other parks. Hence they can be seen throughout the year. However, between the months of March and July, the wondrous spectacle of elephants swimming from islet to islet can be seen.Stop At:
