Bambarakanda Falls, an hour away from the Horton Plains National Park, has the enviable distinction of being the tallest waterfall in the country, and certainly one of the most spectacular in the monsoon.
Bambarakanda Falls plummets down from a height of an enormous 263 metres and is created by the Kuda Oya, a tributary of the Walawe River. Enjoy the sight of the waterfall from the viewing platform, which is reachable by a small hiking trail. One can also visit a few smaller but scenic waterfalls in the vicinity, such as the Lanka Ella Falls, with help from a local guide.
