Introduction

The GALDOLA FALL originates from a tributary of the Rakwana river, which flows down the eastern slope of Suriyakande mountain in the Sinharaja forest reserve. The fall is 328ft (100m) in height and nourished by the springs in the Sinharaja Virgin Forest.

The water courses over rock-strewn terrain and at times the flow is submerged by rocky outcrops. This profusion of rocks gives the fall its name “Gal” “dola” meaning “rock “pool”.

The fall is situated at the 82nd mile post near Rakwana, on the Ratnapura - Pelmadulla road. Rakwana rest-house is just 3km away.
