Bambarakanda Waterfall
Bambarakanda waterfall is located close to Bandarawela and can be seen on your way to Haputale. It is the tallest waterfall in Sri Lanka, being 789 feet. Once at the entrance, you need to walk through a shrubbery area for about 15-20 minutes before coming to the foot of the waterfall. You can find a guide to take you up to the top of the area itself or through any one Bandarawela holiday home the likes of Manor House.

Diyaluma Waterfall
This waterfall is located on the Wellawaya road and can be seen from the road itself. You will find several roadside shops here that sell fancy items and snacks. One of the must-try items at this location is the boiled corn. The waterfall itself is a little over 500 feet tall, though its location makes many believe that it is the tallest waterfall in the country.

Ravana Falls
According to legend, Sita was hidden in one of the caves located behind the waterfall before being rescued by Rama. The waterfall cascades in different tiers and is among the more beautiful waterfalls despite its lack of height.

Devon Waterfall
Although it may look rather imposing at first glance, and quite boisterous, it is actually a graceful and serene beauty. There is no clear path to reach the foot of the waterfall, but it emanates a sense of tranquility even from afar.
