Lover's Leap Falls, Nuwara Eliya

3.9
#3 of 13 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.

  • This waterfall is really very nice. We took not the official way but the abbreviation (climbing with a lot and pull up) that we were at the top but in 20 minutes. The view is really a dream
