About the destination

Kalugala Gerandi Ella hike is presently very popular among the young travellers in Sri Lanka.  This is not a very wide waterfall and the name of this waterfall implies that it is a rat snake-shaped waterfall. It is possible to hike upwards this waterfall cluster, but you need to be careful since there are steep vertical segments to climb. The water flow rapidly decreases during the dry season and according to villagers, December is the best month to see the waterfall. When you reach the top, Kehelpothdoruwegala, Yahangala, Nawanagala, Balalgira, Aliyawetuna Ela range, Sphinx rock, Dumbanagala and some other mountains can be seen. If you love to climb up this waterfall cluster, the best way is to get the help of the villagers, who are always happy to assist you.
