Stunning waterfall right by the road traveling north towards Ella, easy to access! Lots of monkeys to see, but was heartbroken to see a very hungry little dog who looked like he was in great discomfort, he had hardly any fur!

A very picturesque location, the upper falls are easily visible from the road, limited parking but well worth stopping for.

We were on the way from Ella and had a short stop to see the waterfall- it is big enough to see and easy to climb on the rock to touch the water.

No you have a perfect view from the main road to take plenty of pictures. When we visited there was a family of monkeys running around as well.
