Nanu-Oya Falls that is about 60 meters high is a picturesque waterfall in Nanu-Oya village situated closer to Nanu-Oya railway station towards Radella station. Although it is relatively small, it is considered as one of the most beautiful waterfalls in Sri Lanka due to its formation and charming atmosphere.

The water of Nanu-Oya Falls flows through the Udaradella and Bambarakelle areas and this can be seen from the main road. The village and the waterfall are the best place for those travelers who love hiking. Just below the Nanu-Oya Falls, the latter part is another waterfall referred as Glassaugh falls. This is a 20 meters tall waterfall that flows in few steps. It starts from Uda Radella and Kikiliyamana mountains and joins with Nanu Oya.
