Seemingly tranquil by the flourishing tourism industry in the central highlands of Sri Lanka, Ella retains its charm and delicateness. Streams, waterfalls, and plantations are aplenty while this much-loved village is also dotted with human habitation.
This long and lean waterfall has a touch of the renowned Angel’s falls here in beautiful Sri Lanka. Although this 220m fall is the second highest waterfall in the country, it looks a lot taller in appearance and is absolutely breathtaking.
Bourne from a fascinating legend, the Diyaluma Falls is believed to have been created from the bereaved tears of a great king. Having fallen in love with a low caste woman, the two decided to elope together but on arriving at the destination, the woman got entangled with the rocks and plummeted to her death. The grief-stricken king retreated to the mountains and cried away for years and it is these tears that are believed to have created the spectacular Diyaluma Waterfall.
