This limestone grotto of Vavulpane. The grottos consist of at least 12 caves of varying sizes. This is a magnificent cavern lying isolated on the Eastern slope of the Bulutota Rakwana range, northwest of Embilipitiya. The cave is located in the Ratnapura District, in the Kolonne Korale, about 278 mtr. (912 feet) above sea level. The caves are appropriately named; it means Cave of Bats after the 250,000 bats that inhabit it.
Thanks Mr.Theo~!

You can do limestone mining in large scale in Naula Industrial Estate. You also can get in Digana and also in matale (Aluvihare) But these places come with environmental problems. Therefore the best location is the Naula Industrial estate. Its an abandoned place and you can do mining as you wish. Its government property and you have to get the property on long term lease basis . I know the superintendent of naula Industria estate very well and I can introduce you or the party to him. He will advice you how to do the rest. For more info , contact me on 0713477735.
Thanks Mr.Ruwan
