Situated about 4km from Udagama (25km from Belihuloya towards Colombo on the Balangoda – Colombo road), the entrance to the Andirilena Caves is only about 4ft high, but once inside, it is huge.  The main cave divides into two, giving rise to several smaller caves on the way and joining together after about 500 metres.
