Madu River is located at Balapitiya in the south of Sri Lanka. The river is dotted with small islands and the banks are all covered with lush mangrove forests that are home to dozens of improbable animal species. A visitor can spot hundreds of dazzling tropical birds and a few crocodiles depending on the time. Some of these creatures are very rare. The people of its islets produce cinnamon and cinnamon oil.Fish therapy was introduced to Madu Ganga several years ago. Now there are several places by this river offer fish therapy. Different types of fish are put in to tanks and visitors can immerse their feet to these tanks and fish starts biting. You will feel ticklish when they nibble your dead skin on the feet. It’s a great experience.The Madhu River is a treasure trove of ancient delights and magnificent biodiversity. The river safari will take you through the mangrove forest and then to the Kothduwa Temple which is over 200 years old. From there you can travel to Cinnamon Island, a family run plantation, dedicated to a host of indigenous industries, which provide rich insight into southern culture and the island’s storied past.
