The Falls are a fair walk from the road and depending on time of year can be quite crowded. But the view of the falls and the power of the falls is memorable.

Forget the distance that you have to walk near the fall. the sound of water falling down and beauty as a bridal veil give you an unforgettable experience.

Badulla town lies 3.5 km further down the Mahiyangana-Badulla Road. From the last point you need to walk approximately 1.2 km’s through a mountainous track to reach the waterfall. This is a safe and frequently used path due to the popularity of the fall.

If you love waterfalls, like I do and you are in Badulla, then by all means do not miss this one. take time to listen to the water falling down, take photos and admire the surroundings.

Dunhinda water fall is very beautiful which reflects a bridal veil. As far as I am concerned It is definitely worth the long walk for the first timers.

You have to trek on a long hike to get to this water fall. A large mist rises because of the sheer drop. It a long walk but you'll be rewarded with the view.

hi, yes, you can, it also depends on the time of the year i guess. sometimes in dry season, there might not be enough water. Also, you need to walk quite a bit to get to it, which i think makes the swim more pleasant...
