Only about 7 km north of the centre of Badulla lie the picturesque Dunhinda waterfalls.
The can be reached by a pleasant 2 km rocky path along the slope of the hills. The little path across the jungle is an attraction in itself.
Shortly after leaving the area with stalls serving snacks and drinks and souvenirs, you can enjoy the view to the river valley and the Kuda Dunhinda Falls, "Kuda" meaning "small".
The main Dunhinda Falls further upstream are 63m high. They are fed by the river bearing the name of the town, the Badulla Oya, also called Badulu Oya. Though not as high as, for comparison, Devon Falls or Diyaluma Falls, Dunhinda Falls are impressive due to their quantity of water. Dunhinda actually means "roaring", because these are noisy waterfalls indeed.
