Rangala Natural Pool

Rangala Natural Pool
Rangala Natural Pool (Sinhala: රංගල ස්වභාවික තටාකය) is a popular natural pool with a small waterfall situated in Kandy District, Sri Lanka. The pool is created by the Kotaganga, a stream originating from Knuckles Mountain Range.

Presently, this place is famous among the local tourists as a bathing place but several deaths have been reported so far at this pool. The depth of the pool near the waterfall is about 30 ft deep and authorities have not recommended that part for a safe bath. Also, as advised, the water flow and the level can change rapidly based on the rainfall on the catchment regions.

A picturesque view of the pool can be obtained from a narrow bridge located near the pool. Safer and shallow bathing places are available towards the lower part of the pool.
