Diyaluma waterfall, in Badulla district, is Sri Lanka`s most beautiful waterfall and the second highest (220m). It is also the 361st highest waterfall in the world. It will take you about 20 minutes to trek to the falls over a dry rocky river bed. No problem. The waterfall is formed by Punagala Oya. The Diyaluma waterfall flows towards Kirindi Oya under a bridge on the highway from Beragala to Wellawaya. The amount of water is so great during the rainy season that it falls from head to foot with no intermediate cascade whatsoever. What a sight to see. Legend has it that the gods created this waterfall to weep forever over a tragic, princely love affair gone bad.

After about 30 minutes hike you can reach top of Diyaluma Falls. Here you have a series of pools cascading towards the edge of the cliff. When the falls finally reach the edge they fall into one final pool before crashing 628 feet into the pool, far below. This is the 2nd highest waterfall in Sri Lanka and it is hard to get a good look from this vantage point but if you are game enough you can peer over the edge.

After chilling there for over an hour you can head back up the track passing the upper falls and arriving at the top of the upper falls. This was a 15-minute hike and we just followed the track alongside the upper falls. Here you can find more pools. It looks quite average until we explore further towards the edge of the upper Diyaluma falls and can find spots where you can jump.
