Sri Lanka is the country of waterfalls. Particularly in the southwest of the central highlands, close to the monsoon lowlands, the density of waterfalls is extremely high. Some of them are easy to reach or can be seen from roads, others are hidden and require some hiking efforts. Aberdeen is a compromise, it’s neither well-known as those waterfalls such as Devon and St. Clair’s and Ramboda that are close to mainroads, nor is it difficult to find like Mannakethi. And visitors have a choice. They can drive to a close-by car park and take a stairway of only a few hundred meteres downwards to the foot of Aberdeen Falls. Or they can enjoy a 16km long half-day hiking tour of 16 km from Kitulgala up and down or start halfway to the falls at Dehnigatenna, from where the distance is 10 km up and down. Aberdeen Falls, though rarely visited, belong to the highest and most splendid waterfalls of Sri Lanka. More about Aberdeen Falls here...
