Overview
The source of this breathtaking, 116 metre high fall is the Kirindi Ella (stream), which flows from its starting point 940 metres up the Kuttapitiya Mountain. The stream travels 13 km before the cascading point in the Kaluwaramukalana Jungle. It then flows via the Denawaka River to the Kaluganga River, located in the Bambarakotuwa Jungle. Villagers say there is a picture of a tortoise etched into stone here.
At the base of the fall, the water plunges into a deep pool called Diyagathwala. It is said a flight of stone steps leads to the bottom, where a treasure trove is hidden.
In the wooded area surrounding the fall, a multitude of plant species can be found, together with wildlife. This area was previously known as Kustapitiya, meaning itch, as folklore has it that a king suffering from an itch had lived here. Villagers also believe that during Halloween, human voices can be heard near the fall. Furthermore, it is said that fireballs can be seen in the skies above the fall at night.
The nearest town to Kirindi Falls is Pelmadulla, Ratnapura District (Pelmadulla Divisional Secretariat, Kuttapitiya GS area). Take the Ratnapura-Pelmadulla highway and 600m before the Kuttapitiya Junction, turn left down Kuttapitiya Road. Continue for five km to find the fall.
