Dunhinda Falls


One of the most beautiful waterfalls in Sri Lanka, Dunhinda Falls which is 64m in height is located 5 kms north of Badulla town and 1 km from Badulla-Mahiyanganaya Road. The Sinhala word "Dunhinda" means smoky vapour. This smoky vaporous waterfall is created by the river Badulu Oya that flows through the Badulla town. The fall looks quite breathtaking, with its water roaring over a rocky ledge and falling splashing with clouds of spray into a pool in the rocks below. That is why this water fall is called Dunhinda. However, the area around is said to have been inhabited by Bintenne Veddas a long ago.
