Lover's Leap Falls, Nuwara Eliya
(3.9/5 based on 220+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • The waterfall is not very high and not very much water shot through in November. The hike from the tea factory of Pedro to the waterfall is not very strenuous and can be dealt with quickly, so just below chatting up a tuk tuk let. Vista is really very nice and worth more than the waterfall ;)
