Hummanaya / Kudawella Blow Hole, Dikewella, Sri Lanka: Hear The Roar & Feel The Spray!

On our way from Galle to Tissamaharama, our driver suggested that we drive by Dikewella to see probably the world’s highest blow hole, the Hummanaya Blow Hole.

At the entrance of the Hummanaya Blow Hole, the first thing that caught my eye was the huge rib of a blue whale!

After paying a nominal fee of S$2 at the ticket counter, we had to trek about 20minutes to see the Hummanaya Blow Hole. As it wasn’t the right season, the height of the spray was not as high as some had mentioned (about 120feet). Nevertherless, it was awesome to hear the pressure build up like rumbling thunder, the hissing sound of the spray, and feeling the cool spray on your skin on a hot day!

    Hummanaya or blow hole is unique geological phenomenon that makes a beautiful fountain. The best time to see it in great force is the months from April to November. During this period the water is pushed up to 30 meters.
