Waterfalls in Sri Lanka

Sri Lanka is a relatively small country. But there are a large number of waterfalls in the central hills of Sri Lanka. Most located close to popular tourist destinations such as Kandy, Nuwara Eliya, Badulla, Bandarawela, and Rathnapura. There are a large number of waterfalls lying alongside or within a few minutes detour from main roads. But most travelers miss these spectacles due to lack of guidance.

This is a list of some of the highest and most beautiful waterfalls in Sri Lanka. Most of these waterfalls are either alongside the road or a short walk along a well-marked path or steps. Conversely, all waterfalls listed below are easily accessible. So who loves to enjoy the serene beauty of the island can include a few of those in their itineraries.
