We took a tuktuk, which was a good idea because it was raining. The track up to the carpark is rough, but the tuktuk managed it okay. The walk from the carpark to the falls is about 500metres. It's a pretty easy walk, then a slightly steeper climb to the base of the falls. Very peaceful, wonderful view of the... More

It's Free, nice 3Km walk to the site, there are few ways to climb it. Asked you local guide or hotel about more information.

The water fall isn't much, but still a nice up hill walk. Only gets hard if you want to actually get up to lovers leap. Takes about 1 1/2 return. Little shade on way, so be prepared with sunscreen and water.

Turn near Pedro tea factory moving upwards towards this fall, closely to Nuwara Eliya and it's not a difficult terrain to cover. Cars, vans could go up I've seen even tuk tuks, small climb about 150 meters towards the waterfall passing through a local temple, best when it's the rainy season if not the fall is not at it's best...

The waterfall itself is nice enough and a good place to chill for a while. Also well worth it is the way up right through the tea fields. The way is not always obvious without any signs but it seems like you can a broad range of the paths up the hill toward the forest top. If in doubt, the... More

Great walk in emerald green tea fields. Some really nice village views as well at the top. Some locals chilling in the woods, very tranquil. Note that part of San Pedro estate is also called Lovers Leap, and we got confused and paid to enter the factory. However the factory tour was really good, nice and detailed, much better than...

I am so glad we went on this walk, it was so beautiful walking along this orangey-redish road along the tea plantation. Also the waterfall is quite beautiful, more so than the Horton Plains one in my opinion. There were no tea pickers to be seen though, probably because it was Sunday. We did go a bit off the usual...
