Lover's Leap Falls, Nuwara Eliya

3.8
#2 of 7 in Nature in Nuwara Eliya
Hear the roar as masses of water crash down into the pool below at Lover's Leap Falls. Take a half-hour hike along the river to the top of the falls, and admire the tea plantations along the way. Ask a local guide to help you navigate the path, which can get steep and slippery at times. When you get to the top, take a moment to absorb all you see--the falls, the surrounding nature, and the breathtaking view of the town beneath you. Make sure you visit during the rainy season, as the falls lose their water during the dry season.

    The path to the waterfall is pleasant, among tea plantations. It is a beautiful waterfall, but there are more impressive not many distance drive.

    It is a lovely walk for half an hour of back and forth very easy where you end up seeing a great waterfall, is not the most impressive of our trip but we really liked and is worth to enjoy the ride and the waterfall. In addition to that later we knew that everything that surrounded it were tea plants
