This is a small town that is situated within the Uva Province of Sri Lanka. It is a very popular tourist destination in Sri Lanka, and always being frequented by travellers both foreign and local.

Kalugala Gerandi

This refers to one of Ella’s famous hallmarks, and refers to not one, but a cluster of waterfalls. It consists of a number of segments, but many of them are quite visible, even from Mahiyangana Road itself. The height of the waterfalls exceeds 200m.

The Hike

It is possible to hike to the top of the waterfalls but it’s quite vigorous, with near-vertical ascents through thick jungle at certain points. You will also definitely need a guide who knows the area like the back of his hand. There are many villas in Sri Lanka around the area, from entities such as FOX Corporate, so if you’re staying in such accommodation they might be able to refer a guide.

Things to Remember

The hike will take around 9 hours, and you’re going to need start off quite early if you wish to not get stuck on the mountains after dark. You will require plenty of food and water to sustain you during the hike. There are also leopards to keep an eye out for.
