Dunhinda Falls, Badulla
(4.5/5 based on 60+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • To reach the waterfall you will have to walk close to one kilometer into the woods in a foot path from the main road.but you won't feel tired cos there are so many things to experience on your way .sm...  more »
  • One of the most beautiful waterfall in Sri Lanka. About 1.5km from the main road. The road is a bit rough. 
  • To get to the waterfall, you must pay an entrance fee and go a long way in the Valley. The road is made and you can not sell. Stalls are again on the way. There is a viewing platform, that allows for a beautiful look at the end of the road. That's not enough, can go even slightly further down and keep the feet in the water. This is not safe! The way back is pretty exhausting - well good shoe and what take to drink :) upwards
