Moray Falls originates from the Samanala Mountain Range situated in the Nuwara-Eliya District, Central Province of Sri Lanka. It flows down from a height of approximately 40 meters and ends up at the Maskeliya Reservoir. It divides itself into 3 segments before hitting the reservoir. The name ‘Peak Field Falls’ is now used to refer this waterfall as it is situated in Peak Field Estate, which was previously referred as Moray Estate.
There is another waterfall that lies very closer to Moray Falls, originating from the Samanala Mountain Range and falling into the Maskeliya reservoir in the same pattern, which is Sri Pada Falls. Due to its close proximity and similar fashion, often these two waterfalls are confused by the admirers and sometimes thought to be the same.
