How to get there:

By Bus:
From the Balangoda Bus Stand (Station) catch a bus to either: Kaltota, Weli Oya, Kataragama, Hambegamuwa or Damwelodaya. Ask to get down at the school bus halt (stop) at Tanjan Taenna (23 km post). From there it is a 10 min. walk past the school to the Gilanhala.

By Car:
Balangoda is about 146 km from Colombo. At the first roundabout (has a clock tower) in Balangoda turn right in the direction of Kaltota. Soon after turn right again into Kaltota Road. Continue straight ahead, do not turn to the right at any of the junctions. Not far after the 22 km post you will see the large cement signboard for Tanjan Taenna on the left. Very soon after it, at the bus halt/stop, turn left into a cement road, drive past the school, and at the reservoir ("wewa") turn left and proceed about 500 meters to the Gilanhala.
