Devon & St.Clair’s Waterfalls - Talawakele, Sri Lanka

With a peculiar appearance imparted to it by its formation in three continuous cascades this waterfall christened “Devon Falls” pours down to the valley beneath not a long distance away from its brother the “St. Clairs”. On the main road opposite to it, there is situated a modern tea centre finding its abode thankful to this “Veil ( Bridal ) of the Vale ( i.e. valley )”. Driving from Colombo, the capital, via Avissawella one suddenly catches this unearthly sight which is to be soon enhanced by the grandeur of the “St. Clairs”.

“St.Clairs” fall is close to the main road from Avissawella to Nuwara-Eliya and can well be seen from the Main Line rail track close to Talawakelle. It falls down in two cascades and is an inviting site for regular bathers because it is fairly easily reachable from a footpath ( actually there are many ) downhill through greeny tea shrubbery.

Diyaluma Waterfall, Beragala, Sri Lanka

With an appearance and location which often make people believe that it is the highest waterfall in the island, this lanky “Diyaluma” waterfall pours its way down and flows towards Kirindi Oya underneath a bridge on the highway from Beragala to Wellawaya. The extent of water spilt downwards is so great during the rainy season that it makes amends for the monotonously undisturbed water trunk falling from head to foot with no intermediate cascade whatsoever. Its geographical location by one of the most used Highways spanning the Hill Country to the Plains speaks for its reputation not only here but in other parts of the world as well.

Dunhinda Waterfall, Badulla, Sri Lanka

“Dunhinda” is one of the most spoken-about waterfalls in Sri Lanka. Although she couldn’t come even close to the highest waterfalls of the planet in height she rivals many of them when it comes to the natural beauty that it bestows on the environment. Situated about 2 km distance from the main road which runs to Taldena from the remote city Badulla in the Uva Province this is easily accessible and frequently visited by local and foreign visitors. On the way can be seen the “Kuda Dunhinda” ( “Kuda” means small in Sinhala ) which is the prologue to its mighty brother. In native tongue “Dun” means mist or vapour which is the ideal explanation for a waterfall creating wreaths of mist on its way down.
