Located 5km from the town of Badulla lies the Dunhinda falls. To reach the water fall you have to trek from the town through the parklands. If you manage to avoid the monkeys and the Cobra pits its a fantastic walk. You cross worn out bridges and in many spots along the trail you find that people have set up little tea shops.
We visited during a weekday and pretty much had the place all to ourselves save for the occasional couple that were clearly under the impression that they would be the only people around on a weekday.
The falls get their name from the Sinhala word for smoke or mist. Dun is mist and I think Hinda means falls. I loved this spot and it was all the better for being one of those places that we very much visited on the spur of the moment.
