    Picturesque waterfall but somewhat difficult to get close to it. Must follow many small local people roads to reach a parking area from where must walk some various rough walking paths to reach the foot of the waterfall. Solid shoes are required.

    It takes about one hour to climb to the top. Take water. Parking in and around that area is terrible. Go early. Wear a good pair of shoes. Some areas are tricky to climb.

    View is good when there is a good flow of water on the river. The scenery around is breathtaking. Can be viewed from the main road.

    We stopped at this viewpoint on our way from Kandy to Nuwara Eliya. The views are breathtaking and span across 3 waterfalls and a large lake. If you walk through the little crafts shop in the parking lot, you will find a stair case at the back which leads to a rooftop viewing point. The views from there are the best! Within about a 5 minutes drive from there, is the Ramboda Waterfall where a hotel is located. If you walk to the bottom floor you can access the trail which leads to the Waterfall itself and have lunch at the restaurant afterwards.

    Kolapathana Ella Waterfall is one of the most beautiful waterfalls hidden deep inside the jungles of Mandaram Nuwara off Hanguranketha

    This small but beautiful waterfall is located on Sri Pada Road (to Dalhousie). It's near Moussakelle Reservoir.
