Directions by Car
Make sure Driver knows it is to Eluvamkulam, not Wilpattu at Nochiyagama.

At Puttalam Roundabout (near Petrol Shed) take the Road Directly North, which is Old Puttalam Mannar Road. Travel for about 27 km. You will be going past the Towns of Ismailpuram and Wanathawillu (19 km).

Just as you pass the 27th km, you will be crossing a rail track. Approximately after half a km you will see on your left (west) the Sinhala School and the turnoff to Gangewadiya and the Holcim Cement Factory (big sign). Immediately after that will be the Tamil/Muslim School also on the left (west). Be careful there are two large unpainted bumpers.

You will be in the Eluvankulam Town, which has about 15 shops. Keep going and when the shops end there will be a Muslim church. About 100m ahead will be the turn off to Wilpattu House on the left (west). There is a sign at the top of the road.

Proceed 0.5 km along road and you cant miss Wilpattu House.
