Overview
This twin-streamed fall flows over a protruding rock face and resembles an upturned receptacle used for carrying water. It is seven metres high and 12 metres wide. Upstream, the woodland contains several hal (Vateria copellifera) trees, the fruits of which fall into the stream and drift over the fall, hence its name. Superstitious villagers claim they hear the sound of clothes being washed in the water.
The fall is situated in Amunutenne village, Ratnapura District, which can be reached along the Ratnapura-Welelwatte Road.
Sri Lanka is blessed with many breathtakingly beautiful waterfalls and the largest number is located in the Ratnapura District, where there are over 100 waterfalls. Be sure to see some in the cool climes of Nuwara Eliya too, where the water crashing down in all its beauty is guaranteed to enthral.
Sri Lanka’s waterfalls have interesting names and stories behind them, which are mostly related to folklore and legends, which make for interesting bits of information.
