Located in the central highlands of Sri Lanka close to Nuwara
Eliya, this national park consists of montane grasslands and subtropical

Waterfalls in Sri
Lanka:
Bambarakanda Falls is the tallest waterfall in Sri Lanka and is situated

It is located close to Koslanda in Badulla District. Another waterfall worth
visiting during your holiday in Sri Lanka is Baker’s Falls in the Horton
Plains, situated close to World’s End.
