It is a long drive along a terrible road to get to here, which is why you don't get many foreign tourists. I saw coach loads of Sri Lankans, though. Not really worth walking up the track to the foot of the waterfall -- you...More

It's the tallest waterfall in Sri Lanka but so what? You can only view it from the busy road that goes by it. Its far too dangerous to try and even get your toes in the water or wash your face. There is no safe...More

We weren't expecting the falls to be so dramatically beautiful. We also enjoyed seeing the macaques in this area.

We returned here after a year away and the falls were not so spectacular as we have seen on previous occasions, but we were not in the heavy rainy season. At all times of year these falls are impressive being some 220m in height. They...More

We took the bus from Haputale and asked the driver to drop us at the Diyaluma waterfall (LKR 80 / $0.50). Its a very beautiful waterfall, if you can make time for it, don't miss it. Its worth it, no entrance fees. It rained two...More

A nice waterfall where you can take a dip. Easy to get to and cool. Can get quite busy mid morning so get there early. Not sure how high you can climb, but a couple of hidden gems

This is the second highest waterfall in Sri Lanka at 220 metres but we learnt that it is far more spectacular in the wet season and when you can soaked standing on the road next to the waterfall. Local vendors sell freshly cooked corn on...More

Both are good and depends on how much time you have. Diyaluma is nice and you can have a full view from the main road without having to walk at all. Waterfalls is a bit far from the main road but you can dip in the streams... More
