One of the beautiful waterfall in the universe. It's must visit place if you around.
The place has developed for tourists. Easy access. About 1km need to walk to reach the observation deck. You can go down further. But should be watchful, it's so slepery. Be allert on monkeys. Don't bring foods that they can see. You need to pay a small to enter.
Minimum 3 hours require.

Dunhinda water fall situated around 5KM away from Badulla City. Water source is badulu oya river. Hight is 64 m but its one of the most beautiful water fall in srilanka. Meaning of the name ''Dunhinda" is misty water vapor.

It's not a walk in the park but there are a lot of spots where you can take a break and rest. It takes about 45 min to get to the waterfall but the view is worth the effort!

We went up with a guide called sudu.
If you got 5 € it's more than worth it
It takes around 45 exhausting minutes up to the top but you'll get a big reward when you did it.
Sudu is always with you showing you the jumping spots and what's dangerous
Was awesome!

If you are in Badulla or Ella area don't miss this. It is not a real easy hike but many places to sit down so you can manage it. There are villagers selling souvenirs water and snacks on your walkway. The view of the waterfall is breathtaking. If you like you can go down to water from the view point. I did not see any one swimming.

Fantastic place to visit but be warned the walk is a bit precarious in places to say the least. Takes about 15 mins of walking up, down and around the edge of the valley wall until you get to the falls but well worth the effort to get there. Lots of little shacks along the way selling drinks and food etc, recommend you stop on the way back for a freshly made mint sweet drink. 300 rupees entrance fee per person so just over £1.30. Wasn’t too busy which was nice and amazing views. Hard going but well worth taking an hour of your time to view it. Lots of monkeys also there.

You have to walk close to 2 km to get to the fall, and its not a walk in the park, but their are couple of small shops you can rest and continue.

It’s a great spot to walk to, about a 1.7km stroll from the main road. It can be hard for some on the way back to the road. The path is strewn with so many shops selling food and drink items, and it’s such a sad thing to see that polythene and plastic is used for quite a lot of their products. The worst part is that you find plastic bottles and polythene bags along the path and even at the waterfall, thrown by unconcerned visitors and shop owners. The authorities need to pay more attention on this issue to preserve this beautiful spot! You can see monkeys and they mind their own business, as long as you don’t poke into theirs

Lovely waterfall, with a nice (if hot and sweaty) walk through the jungle. We went late in the day, so there were not too many people. However, the number of stalls packing up suggests that it would have been really busy earlier in the day.
