Pahanthudawa Falls & Gorge Excursion

Pahanthudawa Falls, translating to ‘Flame of the Lamp’ Falls cleverly named for the shape of its drop, is probably the most unique waterfall in Sri Lanka for its remarkable landscape and natural terrain. With towering walls of stone on each side, the gorge facilitates waters that descent from the hilltops of Horton Plains, passed by the doorsteps of the glenrock, and thereafter transform into the River Belihuloya on its way to the Samanalawewa Reservoir.
