Height : 63 metres District : Badulla 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.
