From Kalupahana to Bambarakanda


One of the most picturesque jaunt is the walk from Kalupahana (on A4) to Bambarakanda Falls. This path falls between spectacular mountains either side of the road. The distance to waterfall is about 5 kilometres. There is a fair climb here, but you won’t feel that tired due to the magnificent view all the way upwards.

If you feel like a more challenging one you may try the hike up to Horton Plains or Ohiya via infamous Devil’s Staircase on the same road pass Bambarakanda Falls.

You can view this photo in this wonderful Dutch Website - in their guest photo section.

As Kalusudda said, that is a really really nice photograph. I think a lot of people have never visited Sri Lanka's tallest waterfall, maybe this will inspire them to... Nice post K! :)

I like the humble road way, is a part of the environment without dominating the beautiful scenery.
