Overview

This water fall is also identified as one of the most spectacular waterfalls in Sri Lanka. Since the shape of the cascade is similar to a 'Bo' leave (Ficus Religiosa), the fall has given its name. It is formed with Kuruganga River originated from Samanala Kanda (Adam's peak) range of mountains. Since the annual rain fall received by the catchments area of the fall is more than 5000mm, the average flow of the fall is not less than 6 cubic meters per second.

If you are passing Kuruwita, Bopath Falls is not a sight to miss. A gift from the mother nature, Bopath falls is popular among travelers because of the natural pool. Situated around 7km away from the main road.

A gift from mother nature that polluted by human being. Some times the fall may get rough due to the rain in upper areas. Take care when you go to the center.
