We went all the way to the top and it was amazing! But should pay attention to safety. View from the top is perfect!

Bambarakanda Falls is the tallest waterfall in Sri Lanka. Situated in Kalupahana in the Badulla District. You will love it when there so much water. If not it will look a bit dry.

Always worth visiting big waterfalls and this one did not disappoint, easy access via road. And good view points, patrolled by police with some local stalls. Very nice with easy roadside parking so no costs at all.
