It is entirely fitting that Sri Lanka is becoming more and more recognized as an activity and adventure destination. Not surprisingly, the hill country plays a vital role in tourism. Trekking and mountain biking readily come to mind. Devon Falls is 6 kms west of Talawakelle, on the A7 highway. The entire waterfall itself is in three parts: the top, middle and bottom. The top part is almost one tenth of the falls. From the very top, you will be able to rappel down about 5 metres along the rocks on the left side of the waterfall and be geared up in harness and helmet. A quick demonstration is given for those who had never rappelled before. The thrill comes when one has to walk along a narrow ridge. As a safety measure, however, a support system is set up to control the climber's fall in the event of a slip.
