Eight admirably exclusive waterfalls in Sri Lanka

April 2, 2017

For those of you who are new to the term waterfall, it is a place in a stream or river where water flows over one or many vertical drops. These are mostly formed as a result of erosion in rocky areas in the upper course of a river. Because of the water flowing over the rock shelf, streams become wider and shallower just above the falls. The area below the waterfall is deep due to the kinetic energy generated when the water hits the bottom. Not only are these natural formations a beauty in itself, but it is also fun and exciting to experience the force under the vertical drop of water.

During your holiday in Sri Lanka, you will come across several waterfalls. In reality, there are over a hundred waterfalls located around the country; most of them are in the hill stations of Nuwara Eliya and Badulla. Some of these waterfalls are man-made but are still equally breathtaking. There are also several waterfalls that are not officially discovered and some that lie almost inaccessible in the midst of dense forests. Out of these many waterfalls, only a few of them are actually safe to bathe in. Take a round tour of Sri Lanka with Blue Lanka Tours and we can arrange to show you most of these cascading waterfalls around the country.
