"Today you will head out on a day excursion to Gal Oya National Park. \n
\nOne of the least explored locations due to its remoteness is the Gal Oya National Park that serves as the main catchment area for Senanayake Samudraya, the largest reservoir in Sri Lanka from where you go on a boat safari to explore the area\u2019s wildlife. The boat ride takes you through some stunning landscapes comprising of grasslands, rocky escarpments on the banks of the reservoir and provides panoramic views of the Danigala, Nilgala, and Ulpotha mountains ranges in the backdrop. The birdlife is excellent here and Gal Oya is a key nesting location for large congregations of water birds in their thousands which include species such as the Greater Cormorants, Indian Cormorant, Little Cormorant Grey Heron, Spot-billed Pelican, Indian Darter and Asian Openbil. The highlight at Gal Oya however is the opportunity to encounter large numbers of Asian Elephant which are occasionally known to swim across the reservoir to get across to different parts of the reserve. Spotted Deer and Mugger Crocodile are some of the other animals seen. \n
\t\t\nIn the night head to Kallady Birdge and try to listen to the famous \u201cSinging Fish\u201d of Batticaloa. \n
\nBatti is famous in Sri Lankan folklore for its singing fish. According to tradition, between April and September a strange noise \u2013 described variously as resembling a plucked guitar or violin string, or the sound produced by rubbing a wet finger around the rim of a glass \u2013 can be heard issuing from the depths of the lagoon. The \u201csinging\u201d is allegedly strongest on full moon nights, though no one knows exactly what causes it. The most popular explanation is that it\u2019s produced by some form of marine life \u2013 anything from catfish to mussels \u2013 while another theory states that it\u2019s made by water flowing between boulders on the lagoon floor. The best way to listen to the singing is apparently to dip one end of an oar in the water and hold the other end to your ear.\n
