Habarana is another prospective destination in the island situated in close proximity to two national parks and an abundance of flora and fauna. In addition to that this area situated in the North Central province also includes various sites that require careful exploring. One of these sites is the Ritigala Mountain. During a recent visit to Habarana we spent some time exploring this destination associated with many myths and legends.
