  • We can get a great experience by trying to reach to the fall pool. This is bit dangerous task unless well prepared. If you have experience on hiking we can reach to the 1st step of the fall.
  • Great view to witness beauty of Sri Lanka
  • It is a famous landmark among whoever traveled Nuwaraeliya via A7 road or by train.. After the St.Claire falls utilized for the hydro power generation this is the only fall that remain untouched. View points available for a better view..!
  • Popular water fall but cant reach the bottom like many falls.
