  • Tallest water fall in srilanka,Amazing view About 4km to the ticket counter from Kalupahana junction. Better to travel using small vehicles (car,van).Small single door buses can also go but it is really difficult and will block the road
  • This is highest waterfall in the Sri Lanka. Just 4 km from kalupahana junction. Nice view mainly in rainy season and on dry season there’s small water flow. The road is narrow and go with van, small lorry, small buses safely. Then you have to buy tickets to visit waterfall and you can go very close to the fall and there is safe watching area for visitors. And can bath safely. But very close to the waterfall which water falling place is very depth and be safe. Very clean place and you have to keep clean this place for future. And behind the waterfall you have road to visit top of the waterfall but little difficult journey.
