Aberdeen Waterfall

Located amidst lush forestland, surrounded by a surreal landscape, the Aberdeen Waterfall remains one of the most iconic waterfalls in the Nuwara Eliya district! Reaching the cascade involves a fairly difficult hike which will take you down a winding pathway that is composed of narrow staircases and pathways laid in concrete. The walk will take you through lush undergrowth which is usually darkened by the thick canopy – the hike is so scenic that many would find it very therapeutic. During the journey, one could listen to the sweet melodies of songbirds, the slow buzzing sound of the insects, and witness such creatures as well. There are unique varieties of plants and you will also walk past a number of creeks, large boulders, and vines. At the end of the path lies the waterfall –magnificent, epic, and stunning, all the elaborate words fail to describe the beauty of it – It is a site that must be visited to understand and appreciate its splendour!

Explorers and adventurers can walk till the bottom of the waterfall where there is a pool – but bear in mind that it is fairly deep and the water will be cold so it is not recommended for swimming. But instead, you could rent a kayak and paddle your way below the cascade. The mist from the waterfall will certainly soak up your clothes so make sure that you are clad in proper swimwear. The return journey will also be a bit scary since you will have to climb your way up which you so easily got down! You can find more information about the site from our reception and excursions to the site or transportation can also be arranged by reaching out to our resort’s front desk as well.
