1. At Digana turn onto the Victoria Golf Club Road - large signs (on the right if coming from Kandy) show the turning off the main road.

2. Follow the golf club road for approximately 4km. At a yellow bus stop turn left. (If you see a sign for Serendib Signature Resort you've gone 50 yards too far.)

3. Ignore the first right (onto a dirt road) but where the tarmac road splits - only a few hundred yards after you turned onto it - take the right fork.

4. Follow the road for approx. 1.5km - do not take the right turn but carry on straight.

5. As you come down a little hill (slope) you'll see a dirt road veering off and down towards the lake. As you turn onto it you'll pass a small shop on the left. Take the dirt road and follow that for 300 yards until you reach Rukgala.
