Ambuluwawa Tower is located in the suburbs of Gampola Town in Sri Lanka. Ambuluwawa mountain peak has a height of 3567 feet above sea level. It is located over 1000 feet above from the Gampola Town. The tower is located on the summit of the mountain peak. Since there are no other mountains in the surrounding area and due to its unique location, Ambuluwawa Tower gets an undisturbed view from far away and vice versa. The tower is visible from Gampola Train Station.

Ambuluwawa Tower

The 48 meters tall, cone-shaped tower houses the Stupa (Pagoda) of the Buddhist Temple. As you climb up, it has several viewing platforms for you to enjoy the stunning views. The staircase gets narrower as you go up. The spiral staircase will be a challenging one to climb if you are not comfortable with heights. Then you can experience the most amazing 360-degree views of the surrounding mountains, forests, rivers, and towns. Sometimes the view can be covered by the continuous mist.
