Dunhinda is the pride of Badulla and Srilanka’s loveliest and most dramatic waterfall and 200 ft in height. This is a part of the “Maha weli” rever system, carrying down the waters of Badulu oya. According to the folk history of Badulla, there was a time when the whole area, which is now the Badulla valley, was inundated due to the rever being blocked by a Wild creeper which had grown where the Dunhinda begins it’s drop. The king of that time gave a commission to a subject to have the creeper removed and save the valley. The task took three months and saw the birth of the waterfall and the safety of the valley.
