We made a detour from Wellawaya in our rental car and were not disappointed. The waterfall is beautiful! It's a quiet place, so you can enjoy a picknick without being bothered by local people or crowds of touristst. On this topic we read other comments of other people who made a walk to the top of the falls. When you... More

The Diyaluma falls are well worth seeing in all seasons but are incredibly powerful and dramatic after seasonal rains. The local environment is very beautiful and it is wonderful to watch the water crashing down on to the rocks with a backcloth of trees and mountains. A bridge at the foot of the falls is a very popular tourist stopping... More

Catch the infrequent bus from Haputale to the bottom of the waterfall (bridge) and then ask locals directions (and keep asking and asking) for the path to the waterfall. Eventually you will pass through a rubber factory, some local homes and farmland, from there you go straight up the hillside following an overgrown and indistinct path. about a 40 minute... More

I have passed by this water fall many times & am sad to see it at this state as it is approx 10% of what it used to be. The food / tea kiosk at the bridge are far from clean. We managed to patronize a restaurant approx 400 meters down the road towards Wellawaya which had a clean toilet... More

The picture shown is definitely not of Diyaluma. I am having my adventure treks to this place more that 10 times a year, and therefore can vouch for the inaccuracy. TASK ADVENTURE organizes treks to upper diyaluma with or without an abseiling point before the exact point that the fall is shooting its water cannon to the ground which is... More

Even in the dry season, when we were there, these falls are very special. The drop is 220 meters and when the falls reach the road, they flow in many directions over large boulders.

The waterfall offers really great views both from the bottom and the top. It's not an easy walk but it is worth it, especialy because you can take an awesome bath in the pools at the top. Definitely recommend it!

Good fun to climb to the top pool where you can take a dip with the locals. Its a bit of a scramble to the top but its worth it.
