Today, you have the choice of mountain biking to the pre-historic Beli Lena Caves. The cave lies at 9,000 feet upon a very steep path atop a ledge halfway up a mountain, offering breath-taking views of the countryside. The place where the 'Balangoda Man', a 16,000-year-old skeleton was found, it’s also offered up substantial findings of artifacts and tools going back to about 30,000 years BC. These discoveries are considered to be very important as the earliest evidence of tools are thought to be from Europe, dating back to 12,000 years BC. These findings have proven that the “Balangoda Man” was far more advanced than the Europeans of that era.
