If height does matter, then the Bambarakanda Falls takes pride of place in the ‘must see’ list of Sri Lanka’s waterfalls, if only for the purposes of record. Falling from a height of 795ft, it is located in Kahawatte off the main Colombo-Bandarawela road and is barely an hour’s drive from Bandarawela. No river hurtles down the rocky precipice but instead a tiny stream appears at the top and then, quarter way down the rock, breaks into two and falls without much fanfare.

One of the 'must see' waterfalls in Sri Lanka.
