Majestic is all I can say and the location around it is beautiful. The travel to this place is really tiring and you should keep atleast half a day dedicated to the falls. A good experience.

If you coming by train, from Thalawakele station you need to catch a bus or a tuk tuk to reach this place. You can see the St. Clair... More
