#1 of 6 in Things to do in Badulla
Dunhinda Falls is a waterfall located about 5km from Badulla town in Sri Lanka.The Dunhinda Falls is one of Sri Lanka's most beautiful waterfalls.The waterfall, which is 64m high gets its name from the smoky dew drops spray, (Dun in sinhala means mist or smoke) which surrounds the area at the foot of the waterfall. The water fall is created by the river called Badulu Oya which goes through the Badulla town.To reach the water fall you have to walk more than along a foot path. Along this foot path you can see another small waterfall called Kuda Dunhinda at a distance. However walking along this muddy foot path is really worth as the waterfall is so beautiful. Along this foot path there are many native venders selling herbal drinks to refresh and rest yourself. At the end of the path there is a secure stage constructed for viewers to see the waterfall. If you are brave enough you can reach the foot of the waterfall and cross the river and see the most beautiful view of the fall.

  • Dunhinda water fall is very beautiful which reflects a bridal veil. As far as I am concerned It is definitely worth the long walk for the first timers.  more »
  • You have to trek on a long hike to get to this water fall. A large mist rises because of the sheer drop. It a long walk but you'll be rewarded with the view.  more »
