A beautiful water fall, which was flowing due to heavy rains,which made it more beautiful. A must see on a trip to Nuwara Eliya. You can see it from the roadside. Lovely for photographs.

St. Clair waterfalls located at St. Clair estate of Thalawakele. You could see this beautiful waterfall even by your train tour or else very closely if you are travelling by a vehicle. I have experienced both and love the view of it.

You can treak to the waterfall but wear good shoes. I took a tuk-tuk up to 2/3 height. After that access only by foot. Worth the effort. Don't forget a rain jacket.
