Hiriwadunna is located in the region of North Central. Hiriwadunna is a village of approximately 2500 people, they are very rich, maybe not by city standards but they have everything they need. They produce their own food, barter their crops with their neighbours. The village trek begins with an awesome walk along a bund of a Wewa or manmade reservoir. The reservoir itself, the surrounding scrub jungle, marshland and village are a hive of early morning or an evening activity.
The amazing birdlife, butterflies and possible sightings of crocodile only add to the charm of seeing the villagers as they go about their early morning tasks of fishing, or washing clothes at the periphery of the lake.
