Waterfall Dunhinda (also Dunhinda, Danhinda Falls) , though not is one of the most picturesque, but definitely one of the most powerful and affluent in Sri Lanka. The height of 63 meters, and it consists of only a single threshold, where the water falls powerful stream of water. There is a legend, if you believe which, at the bottom of the pool at the base of the waterfall hidden treasures guarded by the spirits of the Princess and her lover.

Once you arrive on the bus to the entrance to the waterfall, then you will have to continue on foot along mountain paths and jungle about two kilometers. In some places the ascents and descents are steep and even dangerous, but in General to overcome the route everyone can do. The trail ends at a viewing platform from which you can go down to the pool waterfall. But this is not recommended, because the bottom is very wet and slippery. By the way, take care of equipment here, because around the waterfall is constantly hanging from a suspension of small droplets, and the humidity is very high. Also be careful when dealing with wild monkeys, who here can meet you along the path to the waterfall: hide everything that is bad for you fixed (watches, chains, phones), and do not leave belongings unattended.

Hello! The first time we go to Sri Lanka. Exploration))). Planned in November-December for two weeks. I would like to rent a house on the coast (preferably right on the beach). But not in the hotel but it was a private house/Bungalow/etc. is Very desirable with the kitchen. And I want to look for housing already in place. That is, to arrive, to remove that thread for a day, what would things leave and go in search of a place by the ocean. Is it real? Is there in Lanka beaches "the private sector" on the first line? ...
