  • Our driver showed us these falls as one of his favourites and after heavy rain it was a great sight. Easy to view and worth the stop 
  • Devon is a smaller water fall but worth a stop. It is a pity that it's only a trickle during the dry season as most of the forest cover above it has been cut down by the underworld gangs. 
  • Beautiful view and most beautiful to have the Sri Lankan tea with chocolate cake in the Café opposite llshalalat and enjoy the scenery.
