Dunhinda Falls is 5km from Badulla town and from the main highway it is a
tortuous 1km walk. The Ella rest-house is 29km away.
Dunhinda is considered to be one of the most enchanting falls in Sri
Lanka and is in close proximity to Badulla town. The water resembles a
thin cloud as it cascades 63m downwards into a large pool. The backdrop
to the fall is known as 'Dunhinda Adaviya'. ‘Dun’ in Sinhalese means
‘mist or vapour’ which is the perfect description for a waterfall
creating wreathes of mist on its way down.
