Colombo (News1st): Hummanaya, ranked among the top tourism destinations in the South of our country is a rare geological experience. However, pollution caused by people visiting the area has posted a threat to its future.

Hummanaya is considered to be the second largest blowhole in the world and has attracted tourists from all across the world. Negligence and reckless behaviour by humans has resulted in the natural destruction of this wonder of nature.

The coastal lines surrounding Hummanaya are littered with non-degrading material including polythene, fishing nets, plastic bottles, and other items.

Area residents charge that the relevant authorities have not taken any steps to remove the garbage from the area, although this has been the situation for a considerable period of time.

Attempts made by News1st to contact the Director General of Department of Coast Conservation Prabath Chandrakeerthi to inquire into this were futile.
