Walking Around Water


At 109 meters (or 358 feet), the Ramboda Falls is considered to be the 11th highest waterfall in Sri Lanka. Located in the Pussellawa area, the falls are formed by Panna Oya, a tributary of Kothmale Oya. Since I visited in the end of February, I couldn’t witness the falls in all of its glory. The waterfalls run full only after the month of May, which is the onset of monsoons in Sri Lanka. The walk to the falls is slightly scary (I have a deep rooted fear of descents) and you need to enter the climb through a fancy hotel. There is a barricade and seating area where you can enjoy the sights and sounds of the falls. Unfortunately, due to security issues, you cannot take a dip in the water here, but it is quite an interesting detour if you plan to visit the island nation anytime soon.
