The Hidden Beauty of the Hills

Bomburu Ella Waterfall

The Bomburu Ella Waterfall is the widest waterfall you’ll find in Sri Lanka and it is among one of the most beautiful attractions here in the island’s hill country. While it is found a little ways away from the beaten path, this is an attraction that you should definitely seek out and enjoy.

What makes the Bomburu Ella Waterfall stand out is its structure – it isn’t actually a single waterfall! Instead, it’s a collection of ten waterfalls that have formed side by side each other. All together, they make for a truly impressive sight that will forever be etched into your memory.

in order to reach the Bomburu Ella Waterfall, you’ll have to take a 14-kilometre drive from your cosy room in Nuwara Eliya. There are several options when it comes to the route but generally, the Nuwara Eliya-Welimada is considered to be the best choice. Once you arrive on location there’s a bit of a challenging hike awaiting you. Don’t let that discourage you, however, the reward is more than worth it!
