19.97km from Modara Gala Rock (Yala NP)A quite hide out located amidst the village and close proximity to Yala Palatupana entrance. It is only 10 km from there to the entrance trough a shortcut. Highly recommended to get a 4x4 jeep to go to the entrance from here through this shortcut. Hide Yala is walking distance from Kirinda - Sithulpawwa main road. The dorm has 8 beds and 2 bathrooms. A separate dining area and 2 air conditioned rooms as well. Hide Yala is very clean and cozy with the view of Peacocks and variety of birds coming from the jungle in front of it. The garden has several wood apple trees and there is a lake nearby which is a walking distance. The caretaker is very friendly and courteous. You can pre-order the menu you want including barbecue and he is always good enough to customize the menu as per your requirement. A hot cup of tea in the morning and in the evening will energize you with the lush view in front of the dormitory. A group or couple of families can have a super time there while enjoying the wild life. Highly recommend this place with 5 stars.
