Introduction in brief :

This water fall is also identified as one of the most spectacular waterfalls in Sri Lanka. It is formed with a brook originated from Piduruthalagala (2524m) the highest mountain in Sri Lanka. A sump is built in the downstream to collect water for a portable water system. You have to walk 500m from the main road to reach the place where the water sump is located. And there is a moderate trek of another 100m to reach the base of the fall.

Folklore says:

Once a prince was lost his way in the jungle and rescued by a beautiful girl in a nearby village. Finally they were fallen in love & become inseparable lovers. Since the affair was not accepted by the Prince's parents, they suicide leaping from the top of the fall & caused to award the name to the fall.
