Just off the Kandy–Nuwara Eliya highway, the Ramboda Falls gushes down a steep and deeply tiered rock face. You can view the falls’ middle section from the road, but to absorb its full magnitude, descend the stepped path from the Ramboda Falls Hotel to the base of the cascade. To see more, consider climbing to the top—although it’s a fairly challenging hike— for spectacular views over the upper section and surrounding forests.
While it’s possible to see the Ramboda Falls independently, the easiest option is a tour that also covers more of Sri Lanka’s hill country landmarks. Most tours are private and come with a private air-conditioned vehicle and driver-guide. Tours typically depart from Kandy and stop at local attractions such as tea plantations along the way.
