Elgin Falls (Sri Lanka)

Elgin Falls (Sri Lanka)
Elgin Falls (Sinhala: එල්ජින් ඇල්ල) is a 25 m high waterfall of the Agra Oya at the last step of the northern slope of Horton Plains socle in Nuwara Eliya District, Sri Lanka (Kautzsch, 1983). A picturesque view of the fall can be obtained from the train on the railroad between Ambewela-Nanu Oya stations.

The fall gets its name from Elgin Estate located nearby (Kautzsch, 1983). Elgin is the name of the capital of the Scottish county of Moray while there are several towns called Elgin in the USA (Kautzsch, 1983). The stream's sources rise from the jungle south of the fall.
