Welihena Forest Reserve

Welihena Forest Reserve is a small forest in Matara District, Sri Lanka. 
Extending in an area of about 329 hectares, the forest is an ideal place for bird watching (Abeyawardana, 2004). The groves of pine trees have given the forest a distinctive European outlook (Abeyawardana, 2004). The Welihena reservoir is situated within this forest reserve.
