Bambarakanda water Fall

This is the highest water fall in Sri Lanka. The waterfall is 802ft (241m) of height. Set amid an evergreen forest, it is formed by the Uduweriya Haputale mountains’ Kuda Oya (river), a tributary of the Walawe River. It cascades in a torrent (especially in the wet season) from a rocky outcrop into a deep, basin-like pool. To the left of the fall, centuries of wind and rain have formed what is said to resemble two embracing lovers out of the rock.

The thin stream of water which plunges over a rock slab like a thin silver rope, splits into two at ¼ of its length.

But, this waterfall is not famous as Diyaluma fall because of lack of beauty, its location and the limited water as it flows down the rock slab.

The fall is situated in the Badulla District( Uva Province), Belihul Oya area (Kalupahana area), Handumulla PC. From the Colombo – Badulla highway (4 miles away from the Colombo – Bandarawela main road), turn left for Weerakoon village and continue for 5km to the fall. The terrain is relatively difficult, so a four-wheel drive vehicle is recommended. Belihul Oya rest-house is 18km away, and Koslanda rest-house is 27km. World’s End, another of Sri Lanka’s major natural tourist attractions, is just 18km away. Do remember that it is a wet season fall. It is in full glory from October to March.
