Full description

Journey to Bambarakanda Falls, Sri Lanka’s highest waterfall, on this private trek and tour with a local guide. Hike through the mountains and the Devil’s Staircase, a narrow path with hairpin bends. Stop at a tea plantation village and enjoy swimming and lunch at the waterfall.

After meeting your guide, travel via train to Ohiya. At the tea plantation village, meet local families and interact with children at the village school. See women picking tea in the plantation and try picking yourself for 10 or 15 minutes.

After the village, visit Lanka Falls, a beautiful waterfall in a hidden forest that not many people visit. Enjoy swimming and a picnic in seclusion and silence before heading to Sri Lanka’s highest waterfall, Bambarakanda.

Venture to the foot of the waterfall to enjoy the big splashes of water falling. Descend further and snap some photos of the unbeatable view. Choose to swim some more before taking transportation back to your pickup location.
