Overview
This beautiful 30 metre fall is incipient of the streams and brooks of Sri Lanka’s highest mountain, the Piduruthalagala (2,524 m). It flows over hard granite ledges and the water is collected in a tank and used for drinking. In dry spells, the flow is languid.
The fall is said to derive its name from the tragic tale of a prince, who while hunting in the jungle, lost his way. He was rescued by a beautiful damsel, and the two became inseparable lovers. But the match was not to the liking of the prince’s subjects, so the two decided to immortalise their love by leaping from the top of the fall to their death.
Superstitious villagers avoid the fall at night. The fall is situated in Hava Eliya, 1.5 km from Nuwara Eliya, Nuwara Eliya District. Many hotels and guesthouses can be found in Nuwara Eliya.
Sri Lanka is blessed with many breathtakingly beautiful waterfalls and the largest number is located in the Ratnapura District, where there are over 100 waterfalls. Be sure to see some in the cool climes of Nuwara Eliya too, where the water crashing down in all its beauty is guaranteed to enthral.
