Kurundu Oya Falls (Maturata Falls)
At 189m, this is the second highest fall in Sri Lanka. From its source, the Kurundu River, the water cascades down into a deep ravine before later joining the Mahaweli River.
Located in the Nuwara Eliya District, to reach the fall take the road from Nuwara Eliya to Kandapola. After 18km the road winds past the Piduruthalagala ravine and the Coodoogala Jungle. Continue for another 11km until the Kurundu River and turn right by a stream. After 2km, it is not possible to continue by vehicle; park and walk onwards, past the tea pickers. The fall is situated 100m further into the tea plantations.
