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.

Legend has it that a feeing king (King Mayadunne) found refuge in the village (where the glenrock sits) cave centuries ago. Here he built a temple inside a cave decorating it with frescos and statues of Lord Buddha along with other deities.
