Ramboda Falls

Ramboda Falls
Ramboda Falls (Sinhala: රම්බොඩ දිය ඇලි, Tamil: இறம்பொடை அருவி) are located in Ramboda area in Nuwara Eliya District, Sri Lanka. Originated by the same water stream, three waterfalls namely Upper Ramboda Falls, Middle Ramboda Falls and Lower Ramboda Falls are found there located near each other. The waters of the stream finally enter Kotmale Oya in the Mahaweli catchment area (Abeywardhana, 2004).

Upper Ramboda Falls 
The Upper Ramboda Falls is the first cascade of the three waterfalls. The fall is 100.92 m (331.10 ft.) high (Abeywardhana, 2004) and its observation point can be reached by walking approximately 500 m distance along the narrow footpath that starts from the Middle Ramboda Falls.

Middle/Center Ramboda Falls 
This is the smallest waterfall among the three cascades and is located very close to the road. The fall is 3.38 m (11.08 ft.) high (Abeywardhana, 2004).

Lower Ramboda Falls 
The Lower Ramboda Falls is located near the Ramboda Falls Hotel which is located just after the Ramboda tunnel. The fall is 110.15 m (361.38 ft.) high (Abeywardhana, 2004) and can be reached by walking nearly 200 m distance along the footpath that is fallen through the hotel.
