Lover's Leap Falls, Nuwara Eliya

(280+ reviews on the web)
Waterfall Nature / Park
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. Work out when and for how long to visit Lover's Leap Falls and other Nuwara Eliya attractions using our handy Nuwara Eliya travel itinerary planner.
