This is a beautiful waterfall situated in pothatawela village 10km away from Rattota-Pallegama road. View is breathtaking. Road condition is really bad but manageable even by a car if you drive carefully.

A very nice location in the knuckles range, the cave behind the fall is a different experience. Good to visit when there is more water (after a rainy season).

Had visited with friends on July. The water fall is an iconic scene. The water is pure and cold. Overall a good tourist place for the route. No diving!
