  Bambarakanda Fall

The highest waterfall in Sri Lanka, which is 790ft in height, is about 4km away by a small motorable road off Kalupahana, which is 14km from Belihuloya towards Badulla.

It will be a pleasant experience to have a dip in the pool at the base of the fall. This base pool can be reached by walking about a kilometer through the forest. It would take 1-1/2 2 hours to travel the 18km from Belihuloya to get to the waterfall.

  Brampton Fall

Along the Colombo-Badulla road about 10km from Belihuloya, one comes to this fall, which is about 6m in height, among several smaller falls. This tributary of Weli Oya flows down the eastern slopes of Mt Papulagala (1530m) forming several cascades among huge trees of the surrounding monsoon forest. In half an hour one can reach this waterfall.

  Diyaluma Fall

The majestic Diyaluma fall, the second highest in Sri Lanka , has a height of 220m and can be seen from the Koslanda-Wellawaya main road. This is the last of a series of waterfalls of the Poonagala Oya. The distance of 34km to fall can be traversed in about 1-1/2hours.

  Duvili Fall (Walawa Ganga Fall East)

The name of this 40m waterfall is derived from the Sinhala word for dust duvili, as it appears to raise a cloud of dust at the base. To reach this waterfall one has to turn off Kaltota (28km from Balangoda) and walk about 2km through very difficult terrain where sometimes even wild elephants prowl.

The distance from Belihuloya to this waterfall is about 45km and would take about 3hours to reach it.

  Galagama Fall

This 500ft waterfall is in a deep gorge in Belihuloya covered with large slippery rocks. To reach this, one has to travel up to Ihalagalagama along a small motorable road for about 5km and walk about 6 km through paddy fields and scrub jungle. It will take about 2 hours to reach this waterfall.

  Pahanthuda Fall

This waterfall, about 15ft in height is situated one and a half a kilometers from Belihuloya. The base of this waterfall, carved out of the rock bed is shaped like an oil lamp. Hence it has earned the name Pahanthuda Ella from the Sinhala word "pahana" for lamp.

To get to this mysterious, but beautiful fall, one has to travel along the Ihalagalagama road for a kilometer and walk down the mountain for half a kilometer. The time taken would be about one hour.

  Papulagala Fall

Off the Badulla Road , 5km east of Belihuoya at Lower Hiralouvah, a steep winding road leads to Upper Hiralouvah through the Brampton Estate for about 4km, where at this part of the estate is bordered in north by a rock range flanked by Mt.Papulagala. During the rains a brook forms this waterfall, which is about 30m high. This can be seen from the A-4 Road .

  Rawana Fall

A tributary of the Kirindi Oya plunging with a foamy spray forms this 9m waterfall close to the Ella-Wellawaya road about 6km from Ella. This waterfall is 54km away from Belihuloya and would take 2hours to reach.

  Surathalie Fall

Eight kilometers from Belihuloya, one can see this waterfall, from the Colombo-Badulla main road at Halpe. In true sense of the word, this is not a waterfall but a water-slip. The water, slides down along a rock wall on the eastern slope of Mt Ellamana for about 65ft, forms this water-slip and joins the Weli Oya later. This waterfall can be reached in about 20mts.

  Walawa Ganga Fall (West)

This 30m waterfall is set in the deep monsoon forest about 22km from Balangoda. To reach this fall, one has to travel 8km up to Aldora along Balangoda-Kaltota road and another 8km to Mulgama along a rough small road, where, though motorable, only a jeep or tractor can ply. The rest of the distance has to be walked through rough terrain and jungle. The journey to this waterfall, about 53km away from Balangoda, takes approximately 6 hours.
