January 2020 · 3 min read · Central Province

Hello everyone, Today I'm going to share another better travel journey where I went Mandaramnuwara in Sri Lanka. This beautiful waterfall, located in the village of Mandaram, is another beautiful waterfall that is within easy reach of Mandaramnuwara.

When we travel to Kolapatana falls, Water level so low. So we missed to look beautiful water flows. However we could see very closely Kolapatana falls. There are so many fabulous green nature indeed.

Mandaramnuwara is one slope of the Piduruthalagala mountain. One side is Nuwara Eliya and the other is Mandaramnuwara. There are many waterfalls in Mandaram Nuwara. The most famous waterfall is the Kolapatana Falls. The Kodiyara Mountain is the highest mountain peak near the village. Also called Kodiyara stone. But this Piduruthalagala is a reserve. You can't enter without permission.

We walked over 1Km to reached down of the Kolapatana fall. After the saw top of the mountain I scared to climbed top. But I had hiking experience previously. So very quickly leaved from my bad thought. I came back strongly.

I explored this location for seek better and easy way to climb middle of the waterfall. I found it. One of corner had safe road to climb rock. From Kandy you can reach Padiyapelella via Hanguranketha, Rikillagaskada and turn 11 km from Elamale junction and reach this beautiful waterfall called Kolapatana.

There wasn't big water flows. I believed no rain fallen very recently nearest this location. Down of the water pool not enough water to the swimming. So we could only wash our faces and hands.
