Such a beautiful waterfall and it’s worth climbing to the top so you can play and swim in the natural pools and then walk alongside the falls to the point where it drops. It’s really good fun! We found a local kid who was offering...More

On our way to Koslanda we saw this beautiful waterfall. It is worth stopping by. The road on the highland of Sri Lanka is beautiful in general.

I took a 3 hour tuk tuk journey when I was elsewhere in Sri Lanka. It cost about 5000 rs and it was absolutely fine. Most people go to the falls by taxi but I saw a few came by tuk tuk, or drove themselves.

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
